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.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Blissful ... bejeweled ... ingenious ... Follies appears to be the heavy favorite to win the Tony for best revival this year. If you head to the Ahmanson, you’ll understand why.” --Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
- "A magnificent cast. Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece ... now works on all four cylinders, Victoria Clark being joined by the deservedly Tony-nominated Jan Maxwell, Ron Raines and Danny Burstein." --Variety
- "A pitch-perfect production ... a unique opportunity for Angelenos to see some of the most talented women of the Great White Way." --Entertainment Weekly
“We are tremendously proud to bring Follies to the Ahmanson,” said Michael Ritchie, Artistic Director. “It is a coup for Center Theatre Group to get it and a gift for Los Angeles audiences to receive it.”
With an extraordinarily 28-piece orchestra, Follies features one of the largest casts (forty-one) ever to appear on the Ahmanson stage. Follies stars four-time Tony Award nominee Jan Maxwell as Phyllis Rogers Stone, Tony Award winner Victoria Clark as Sally Durant Plummer, two-time Tony Award nominee Danny Burstein as Buddy Plummer, three-time Emmy Award nominee Ron Raines as Benjamin Stone and Olivier Award winner Elaine Paige as Carlotta Campion. Maxwell, Burstein, Raines and Paige are all returning to the roles they originated on Broadway.
Also returning to their roles are Christian Delcroix as Young Buddy, Colleen Fitzpatrick as Dee Dee West, Lora Lee Gayer as Young Sally, Michael Hayes as Roscoe, Leah Horowitz as Young Heidi, Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell as Hattie Walker, Florence Lacey as Sandra Crane, Tony Award nominee Mary Beth Peil as Solange LaFitte, David Sabin as Dimitri Weismann, Kirsten Scott as Young Phyllis, Frederick Strother as Max Deems, Nick Verina as Young Ben, Tony Award nominee Susan Watson as Emily Whitman, and Terri White as Stella Deems. They are joined by Grammy Award winner Carol Neblett as Heidi Schiller and Tony Award winner Sammy Williams as Theodore Whitman, plus a 20-member song and dance ensemble.
Containing such well-known songs as “Broadway Baby,” “I’m Still Here,” “Too Many Mornings,” “Could I Leave You?” and “Losing My Mind,” Follies echoes the songs, exuberance and romance of the vaudeville days between the two World Wars.
