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.

Great venue and thoroughly enjoyable performance. The four actors/singers were extremely talented, and the musical accompaniment was excellent. The music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown were clever, allowing the performers to showcase their considerable vocal abilities. Well staged with some slick choreography, this show deserved a bigger audience. Highly recommended!

Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown

Songs for a New World does not tell one story; in fact, it tells a whole collection of stories. Says composer and Tony Award Winner Jason Robert Brown of this riveting musical, “It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.” Audiences are transported from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters. These are the stories and characters of today, told with a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today's popular music.
