The one female in the stellar cast is Celia Keenan-Bolger. I had the opportunity to chat with her to talk about Peter and the Starcatcher, playing a child once again, marrying fellow actor John Ellison Conlee and the rest of her talented family.
I am not saying that cross-dressing can't be funny, but I am saying that it is not a joke in and of itself. It is also simply old hat to laugh at a male character who seems emasculated. Haven't we moved past this?
It's hard to believe how much can be done by a 12-person cast, especially considering how fast the show moves. There isn't a moment to pause and consider the characters' intentions. They share their thoughts and fears directly with us.
