”After seeing Peter and the Starcatcher a few times now, Theatre Horizon’s production has changed the game.”
-Philly LIfe & Culture
”Peter and the Starcatcher at Theatre Horizon [is] unbridled, unpredictable, riotously funny.”
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
”Stripped down and super….now, at Theatre Horizon in Norristown…Peter and the Starcatcher is [proving] that smart theater doesn’t need bells, whistles, computer-generated sizzle and a bank full of money to make magic.”
”Theatre Horizon offers a whimsical, wistful, and refreshingly feminist take on the popular ‘Peter and the Starcatcher.…director Matthew Decker’s inventive staging upends gendered expectations by casting women and nonbinary performers in central roles, reinforcing universality and inclusion within the fantasy genre.”
-Broad Street Review
”Every once in awhile audiences are treated to a piece of theatre that brilliantly demonstrates why they are called “plays.” Theater Horizon’s Peter and the Starcatcher is such a piece….Matthew Decker’s direction is assured and quite inventive.”
“This really is a fantasy which gives a director and actors a chance the be imaginative and to present the utmost in stagecraft. The object is to astound and delight audiences, which Matthew Decker’s new production emphatically does.”
-The Cultural Critic
