J M Barrie’s Peter Pan
October 18 - December 31, 2011
The spectacular new threesixty° stage production of PETER PAN, J M Barrie’s classic story performed in a state-of-the-art theater tent, is now playing through December 30 in the threesixty° Theatre on City Hall Plaza. Conceived by an award-winning creative team and featuring 23 actors, stunning puppets, epic music, dazzling flying sequences performed in the world’s first 360-degree CGI theater set, PETER PAN is an extraordinary experience.
One of the most striking elements of this new production is the setting in which it is presented. The threesixty° Theatre, a 1,300 seat theater tent, allows for performance “in the round” and will stand on City Hall Plaza, Boston.
The entire interior of the tent is lit with more than 15,000 square feet of Hi-Resolution video -- three times the size of Imax screens -- so that both cast and audience are immersed in a CGI Neverland. When Peter and Wendy fly to Neverland, the audience flies with them over 400 square miles of virtual London and beyond.

BOSTON — Warning: I'm not going to be able to get through a review of threesixtyº entertainment's "Peter Pan" without calling it magical. Because, well, it just is.
What's most magical about this retelling of the J.M. Barrie story is what sets this version apart from its predecessors: the 360-degree CGI style that has given the London-based production company its name. All of the settings are projections against the walls and ceiling of a round white tent — 15,000 square feet in all — and those animated scenes fully pull the audience sitting below into the story.
