It's royal wedding day and the opening
of Broadway in Chicago's Peter Pan. In honor of both
special occasions, we are giving away a signed copy of
NeverWorld, the only sequel to Peter Pan that
remains true to J. M. Barrie's original. The book is by
local Chicago author, Peter Von Brown, and the
winner will get a signed copy of the book and a NeverWorld
Peter, the author-not the character, went to England in 2009 to
see the very same production that is opening in Chicago tonight.
He stayed in Kensington Gardens and visited the home
where Barrie lived. He booked the theatre tickets a half a
year in advance and flew half way around the world for what we are
fortunate enough to have in our own back yard now.
The night of the show, he arrived to find everyone dressed in
their finest and sipping champaign. Then he found
out the prince of England was attending that night's performance of
Peter Pan! It's strangely appropriate for today.

production he saw with royalty.
