Peter and the Starcatcher now open at Lyric Stage!
"In capturing the exuberant over-the-topness of the pirate leader, Ed Hoopman channels an earlier Lyric role – that of Groucho Marx from “Animal Crackers.” He was hilarious then, and he is equally hilarious now, strutting across the stage and barking orders to the groveling Smee (Alejandro Simoes)." - Cape Cod Times
