Daytime commuters downtown got a surprise this afternoon thanks to Theatre Under the Stars. That's because Peter Pan (and nemesis Captain Hook) opted to ride the light rail to Neverland instead of flying.
The ride was coordinated by TUTS to help drum up excitement for the Emmy Award-winning musical, which opens December 11 at the Hobby Center.
Last month, editor Margaret Downing talked to legendary actress Cathy Rigby, who, at age 60, is still performing as Peter Pan. On this ride, Peter and Captain Hook managed to get along pretty well, minus a brief skirmish at the Main Street stop. (That's TUTS actress and teacher Kristin Warren as Peter Pan and Sam Byrd, TUTS PR manager, as Hook, in the photo above.)
Check out the video after the jump.
