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.

<p>The play will examine two of America’s most powerful street traditions. The first is the impact of gangs of Los Angeles. The second street tradition is the Nation of Gods and Earths (formally known as the 5% Nation.) These two organizations were geared to influence the youth by establishing self identity and perseverance. Though initiated with good intentions, some members end up living the complete opposite; existing in denial. Five unique characters will seduce your thoughts with dramatic technique simulating sexual confidence and skill. The plot’s literary experimentation is similar to foreplay. Just when you think you’ve reached nirvana, you’re exhausted by multiple climaxes. See, these characters are in love. They’re passionate about love. They’re in love with life and their ambitious pursuit of happiness. They’re also in love for all the right and wrong reasons.</p> <p>Audiences will see a tight knit cast singing, dancing and acting to this masterpiece of a script. With the exception of newcomer Ja’Lon Wright, stage veterans Tony Paul, Lee White, Minerva Larry and Steve Abrams were all cast members of “Jumping the Broom,” Damiek’s first production in 2003 that received six NAACP nominations.</p>
