Peter Pan

Arena-sized pantomime starring Bradley Walsh and Martin Kemp because why not

Are pantomimes in theatres just not BIG enough for you? Well why not try this arena-sized production of 'Peter Pan', which revels in the self-bestowed title of World's Biggest Panto? The loss of intimacy will hopefully be compensated for by some more-impressive-than-usual special effects, and certainly JM Barrie's tale of magical adventure is arguably more suited to an epic treatment than it is an old school panto one. Or it could be horrible, but what the hey: you're not going to get Bradley Walsh as Mr Smee, Martin Kemp as Captain Hook, BMX riders, stuntmen, trapeze artists a seven-metre-long animatronic crocodile, a 10,000-gallon water wall and a 60 feet-wide LED screen down the Hackney Empire, are you?

Utterly awful....stage was small and set was not as hyped up to be.peter pan had a grating voice and no charisma.Bradley Walsh came on and proceeded to insult various women in the audience in a plain sexist and nasty way. Became increasinly rude and crude.got worse with the story being impossible to follow and some very poor acting.The nadir was Bradley grabbing his crotch and thrusting his pelvis. Utterly revolting.could not quite believe it! If an old man did this in front of your kids in the street you would call the police.some tired old playground toilet jokes circa 1980 were rolled out and it dragged on.kids became bored and fidgety. A bit more grim acting and various distracting circus acts dotted around the arena took place which were probably the best bit.Left in the interval.
