Roaring laughs and gasps of wonder emanate from the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater as Theatreworks draws open the curtain on The Lost Boys, an adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan that aims to add even more plaques to the theater’s wall of awards and accolades. Artistic director Murray Ross reimagines Barrie’s timeless tale of adventure and innocence by setting it in an American veterans’ assisted-living center, where Peter Pan gives elderly residents the opportunity to channel their inner adolescence. Theatreworks recommends this production for adults, children 8 or older, and flightless birds that want to live vicariously through the cast.
An intimate black-box theater with seating for about 200, the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater situates audience members as close to the action as the fourth wall allows. Hungry attendees need not sneak backstage to steal prop fruit bowls, as a concessions stand keeps stomach grumbles from disrupting the action with cookies and popcorn ($2–$4), sodas ($3), and specialty cocktails ($5–$6).
Murray Ross has been artistic director of Theatreworks almost since the company was founded in 1975. In his 30 years at the helm, he has adapted and written more than 100 works for the stage. His pen has carved out originals such as I am Nikola Tesla as well as adaptions of Huckleberry Finn and Plato's Symposium. These have all seen life at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, an intimate venue that allows for dynamic, ever-changing stage configurations.
