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.

The thrilling score of Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a mix of Cajun, gospel, folk, country and blues songs. The winner of six L.A. Ovation Awards and five L.A. Drama Critics' Circle Awards, including Best Musical from both, Big River is a slice of pure Americana that has left critics struggling for superlatives and audiences scrambling for tickets.
Set in 1840s rural America, the musical follow the exploits of the irrepressible Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, as they explore life along the mighty Mississippi River. Along the way they meet the uproarious King and Duke, Tom Sawyer, and Huck's father, the sinister Pap Finn. Don't miss what TIME Magazine has called, "a rare show that can truly be called groundbreaking."
