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 must-miss performance. I fell asleep through part of it. I'ts interesting, I attend alot of events and the least impressive often are at the Music Center. Some of the best have been in little theaters around town that I never heard of before. Thank you Goldstar for bringing the little ones to my attention. I'll be pickier in the future about attending any more bombs at the Music Center.

- "The most romantic score of any Broadway musical." --The New York Times
<p>Direct from Broadway and the winner of 6 Tony Awards including Best Score, The Light in the Piazza is the romantic new musical that brings together the talents of Adam Guettel and Craig Lucas in an adaptation of Elizabeth Spencer’s charming novella, directed by Bartlett Sher.</p> <p>This lush, dreamy musical finds Margaret Johnson on vacation in the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara, and Clara’s unexpected encounter with a handsome Florentine named Fabrizio. In Italy, true love and marriage abound in this contemporary, witty and elegant production.</p> <p>Elizabeth Spencer's first book, Fire in the Morning, was published in 1948 and her most recent, The Southern Woman, in 2001.</p> <p>The Light in the Piazza, the first work to bring her widespread acclaim, was published in The New Yorker (which devoted an entire issue to its publication) and then was released as a novel in 1960. In adapting it to the stage, Craig Lucas (Prelude to a Kiss, Reckless) has distilled the novella to relate a poignant tale of two unusual young people who fall in love and to explore the essence of love itself.</p> <p>The score by Adam Guettel (Floyd Collins, Saturn Returns) is romantic and passionate. He has written music and lyrics that reveal the feelings of all of the characters in The Light in the Piazza in soaring melodies. </p>
