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.

King Lear has divided his kingdom among his three daughters. Deceived by age and pride, he banishes his youngest daughter, blind to her devotion and the greed and cruelty of his two eldest. Lear is cast out by his eldest daughters into a raging storm and forced to keep company with fools and madmen, while Gloucester’s bastard son Edmund schemes against his half-brother Edgar. Tension mounts as sanity is lost, sight is taken, and war breaks out for control of the kingdom in the Bard’s stunning meditation on aging, family, and hysteria.
Larry Cedar as King Lear

About the Ticket Supplier: The Porters of Hellsgate Theatre Co.
We are a young classical theatre company based in Los Angeles, CA. It is our intent to bring the work of Shakespeare and other classical authors to life here in the City of Angels.
We do this because we love it. There is great joy in studying and staging the masters. It is also our belief that in our electronic and virtual age the communal experience of theatre - and classical theatre's communion with the past - is vitally important. Ours is an art that media can at times push out but never replace; we are proud of that, and are working to help keep the classics alive and well in Los Angeles.
It is our hope to one day be a major force in the theatrical community of our city. No matter how difficult that path is, nothing can stop us from having an incredible time trying to get there.
