PICK OF THE DAY

On the fly

Former Olympic gymnast (1968, 1972) Cathy Rigby is as nimble as ever. If you don’t believe us, just watch the promotional video for Cathy Rigby Is Peter Pan at www.cathyrigbyispeterpan.com. The Emmy Award-winning, Tony Award-nominated production is in Boston this week. Seeing Peter, Wendy, Tink, Tiger Lily, the pirates, and Captain Hook sing and dance their way through Never Never Land is fun, but in this show it’s the flying that really counts. We expect it will be seamless — it’s choreographed by “fly guy” Paul Rubin, who’s worked with Rigby in more than 1,500 performances. Pictured: Krista Buccellato (left) and Rigby. April 23, 7:30 p.m. April 24, 7 p.m. April 25-26, 7:30 p.m. April 27, 2 and 7:30 p.m. April 28, 1 and 6:30 p.m. $38.75-$89.75.
