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.

This was a perfect production of a perfect play. Every actor was wonderful, and not a subtle nuance was wasted. My wife and I didn't stop laughing for a moment! It is a very thoughtful and intelligent play, so many audience members with short attention spans left early. However, if you are up for witty banter and intelligent humor, it doesn't get any better than this!
Jack loves Gwendolen. Algernon loves Cecily. The women, too, are in love, with men they believe to be called Ernest - “that name that inspires absolute confidence.”
While Gwendolen’s Ernest seems perfectly honorable, Cecily’s is ostensibly wicked. Yet both have bent the truth and neither is quite who he says he is. The four lovers find themselves together in the country, snared in romantic entanglements only the sharp wit of Oscar Wilde could devise and resolve.
