Who doesn’t love the magic of the story of Peter Pan? Peter and the Starcatcher is the Tony Award-winning smash that is packed with theatrical razzle dazzle.
This play with music is a prequel to Peter Pan, as we learn how a young orphan boy becomes The Boy Who Won’t Grow Up. Based on the best-selling novels of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter… uses ingenious stagecraft to bring the adventures of Peter to life. Twelve actors portray over 100 characters, including marauding pirates, orphans, mermaids, the evil Black Stache (eventually Captain Hook) and a young girl named Molly, who becomes the mother of Wendy, Michael and John. It’s the perfect show to begin the season, appealing to Holiday tourists who will be drawn to the title and subject matter.
Ideal for families, the play’s wit and cheeky quality is also wonderfully entertaining for adults. The New York Times said, “It’s the most exhilarating example of storytelling on Broadway since Nicholas Nickleby.”
