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.

Mad Forest is an interesting, innovative and thought provoking play. The production is excellent. The cast members (of which there are 19!) play multiple roles and are uniformly accomplished. The play mixes vignettes, a documentary style and even a bit of fantasy to create a piece that is unique. I went with a group of people and we had all had questions that provided for a lively conversation during the intermission and after the play was over. If not familiar with Ceausescu and the Romanian revolution of 1989, it couldn't hurt to do a quick Wikipedia read before going to the show.
This play runs 2 hours and 30 minutes, and includes smoking of herbal cigarettes and recorded gun fire. Suitable for high schools students and older.
