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.

I have always been impressed with the Rogue Artists' productions. Their production design is always fantastic, and this show is no exception. The creative use of set pieces, projections and lighting come together to effectively establish moods and settings. However, the script in this case is awkward and needs to be restructured. The story of a writer in the 1920's presenting works to the world as "found" ancient Greek texts that he, in fact, wrote gets lost in this production. The story flips back and forth between the writer's present day setting of the late 1800's Algeria and his imaginary ancient Greek world with his protagonist. The hoax he perpetrated is not explored in any detail and is so secondary to the play that it could be removed altogether. The characters lack depth so as to keep us uninvolved emotionally in their stories. The much talked about eroticism fails to entice the audience and instead can be a distraction. This is a visual show that lacks the normal wow factor this company is so good at producing.
