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.

World class acting! Didn't realize until it began that I actually saw this play before at a different venue under a completely different cast / production but this performance took it to another level! The set was basic but brilliant, every thing did what it needed to, the photos gave off an eerie Tennessee Williams-ian quality, perfect for this notion of the "memory play." The aunt and eldest daughter were both impeccably acted and the other cast complimented them delightfully without being too obvious or over acted. I actually shed a couple of tears at the end, "but today, I'm just riffing." Shame that it's only a limited showing but catch one if you can! Bravo!

The battle for the heart and mind of 17-year-old Ernestine is waged in a living room in Brooklyn in 1950. The contestants include the lively and glamorous Aunt Lily, Ernestine’s God-fearing father and a mysterious German refugee. As is Ernestine, the country is on the brink of transition. This coming of age tale evokes the poetry of change.
