PETER PAN Reviews
The flying works splendidly.
The Public Review
Flying ballet expertly choreographed and executed under the direction of Ran Arthur Braun.
Morris' brilliance in his flying harness, as he swooped across the bedroom, walked up the walls and somersaulted in the night sky was a high point of the show. Ran Arthur Braun directed both flight and fight, and did a wonderful job.
The Sunday Times
Lots and lots of flying. You barely see the wires attached to Peter and his new friends as they swoop through the air. It is almost as good, I felt, as the film of Mary Poppins. The aerial and flight director, Ran Arthur Braun, had almost as much on his plate [as the conductor].
Heart-stopping aerial work
