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.

Was somewhat dissapointed by the pacing and energy of this. A lot of attention was placed on the set and while it was incredible it might have taken away from the incredible theme of the original story. This is all about 3 incredibly smart and independent women. This 'update' has Violet getting hitched and Judy living out her days alone which I'm not sure I agree with. Also even though this 'update' has a token black & asian character there are no gays or lesbians. I think if we are going to bring this back we need to say something relevant about today.
The actors were all fine (especially Roz), the design incredible but ultimately these songs don't live up to the wonderful energy of the 9 to 5 theme.
Two stars because I 'liked' it but but not as much as I'd hoped to.
Don't miss this new musical comedy based on the classic hit movie! 9 to 5: The Musical features a brand-new score by seven-time Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton that includes the blockbuster title song, plus a book by original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and direction by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (directing his first new musical since Wicked).
Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney stars as Violet Newstead, the super-efficient office manager who joins her fellow co-workers--frazzled divorcée Judy Bernly (Stephanie J. Block) and sexy secretary Doralee Rhodes (Megan Hilty in the role originated by Dolly Parton in the film)--to turn the tables on their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot” of a boss, Franklin Hart Jr. (Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch).
In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy --giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover and rise to the top of the company that once looked at them as second-class citizens. A girl can scheme can't she?
