Peter and the Starcatcher, the multiple Tony Award-winning show that The New York Times called "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades," is the swashbuckling, madcap prequel to Peter Pan. A dozen actors play more than 100 characters, combining their acting talent with ingenious stagecraft and an imaginative story to reveal the origins of "the boy who wouldn't grow up." The musical play takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew in an action-packed adventure that brings pirates, orphans and secret agents of the Queen together on the high seas. Based on the bestselling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), Peter and the Starcatcher boasts an all-star creative team and weaves an enchanting tale that appeals to both adults and kids.

Another tremendous musical from the GCT. Seriously - go and see it! Wonderful performances from all, though I have to give a special mention to Clayton Farris and the rest of the ensemble in "Too Darn Hot" - that number could so easily have seemed awkward and forced, but he carried it with ease - and to the spirited performance of "Tom, Dick, or Harry" - another one that's hard to carry off, particularly if your audience has seen the movie version and has high expectations for the dancing involved. Dink O'Neal was an impressive male lead - what a voice - but the single best song for me was, surprisingly, "From This Moment On", a duet between female lead Donna Cherry and George Champion as General Harrison Howell, practically stealing the show despite his very limited stage time. Very tempted to go again!
This Cole Porter classic takes its inspiration from Shakespeare. Kiss Me, Kate recounts the backstage and onstage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of The Taming of the Shrew. Sparkling with 18 classic Cole Porter songs — including "Another Op'nin', Another Show," "Wunderbar" "So in Love," "Always True to You in My Fashion," "Too Darn Hot," among many others — Kiss Me, Kate epitomizes the Broadway musical comedy at its irresistible best.
Cole Porter's most successful musical, the original production of Kiss Me, Kate opened on Broadway at the New Century Theatre on December 30, 1948. It garnered five Tony Awards in 1949, the same number the revival claimed in 2000.
