Playwright Wilson's treatment of the psychological trauma faced by many veterans was one of the first theatrical explorations of the topic. And his treatment of the relationship between Ken and his lover was not only rare, but so controversial that many early reviewers could not even mention it.
It's a perfect example of "divide and conquer" that will ultimately lead to the decline of L.A. theater. Why? Because talented young actors, fresh out of drama school or college, will be unable to form their own companies with their colleagues.
Neverland is a traditional musical blessed with moments of magic. That's thanks to Morrison, who, as the imaginative Mr. Barrie, carries the show from start to finish. (And who counts numerous Glee fans in the audience.)
