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.

This production wasn't up to the high standards of GCT. The effort was there, certainly from the lead played by Danny Michaels and the lovely voice of his wife, played by Victoria Strong. But overall, the voices were average and the songs bland. But even a mediocre production at GCT is usually superior to what else is playing around town.
Will Rogers is famous for saying "I never met a man I didn't like," and anyone who has ever seen or performed in Will Rogers Follies will agree that there has never been a man-or woman-who did not like it.
Subtitled "A Life In Revue," Will Rogers Follies stands out among musicals because of the magic of its protagonist. Rare is the man who transcends decades and rises to the level of legend. Will Rogers does this not only because of his accomplishments, but because of his philosophy, which espouses respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellowman.
Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: "I never met a man I didn't like." Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time--stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
