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.

Delightful show!!! I enjoy silly, fun, campy shows and this one was certainly that. Not only that, but it was performed spot-on by such talented performers - no weak link in the bunch.
I especially enjoyed Megan Blakeley's hilarious mannerisms and physical touches (after he drank the egg, tabasco and beer - LOVED the physical reaction! AND how she tried to get down the stairs earlier in that scene - just to name a few), Tommy Kearney's evolution from a goofy, uncouth cowboy to a polished, well-mannered gentleman, Shawn Cahill's stereotypical and uproarious uncivilized farm boy, and who can really forget Nick Mizrahi's over-the-top fun character Jose. Wow!
Having it in a theater-in-the-round is interesting and provides some limitations, especially from the viewpoint of the audience, but I loved the use of the stairs throughout (luckily, I was sitting in the right place).
My only criticism has to do with the production side. Although I guessed that the show took place in the 80's, it wasn't stated as such in the program and might've been a helpful touch. Also, there was some great fight choreography that I loved, but a limited crew listing in the program, as I looked to see if someone specific had done that. I found only four crew members credited (director, costume designer, technical director/stage manager and publicity).
