Peter and the…Pineapple?
A pineapple hovers over the false proscenium at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in perhaps the most famous display of the fruit since it was serenaded in Cabaret. But, of all the things that could have been placed in such a conspicuous place, why a pineapple? This is, after all, a tale of pirates and Peter Pan. According to the play’s co-director, Roger Rees, “The pineapple is a universal symbol of welcome and New England sea captains would put a pineapple on their front stoop when they from the south seas to welcome their friends and community to their home.” For more information on the pineapple, check out the article below on Playbill.com.
