Excellent review of "Peter and the Starcatcher" performed by Brelby Theatre

Brelby Theatre is a community theater company run by Metro Arts Middle School teacher Brian Maticic. The reviewer states "As Black Stache, Brian Maticic is a feast. His physicality is tremendous, as are his voice and bright, expressive face. He is hilarious and charming, worthy of Alan Rickman's quintessential Sheriff of Nottingham. It's impossible not to love him."

Metro Arts theater teacher John Perovich is also featured in the review:
"John Perovich's Lord Astor has a large, comfortingly refined presence. Perovich knows his craft and gives every moment its due. We miss him when he's not in a scene."
