In this 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" and his home, the enchanted Neverland. During its Broadway run, the show won five Tony Awards and received rave reviews from the New York Times. Now it's landing in its new home at New World Stages and bringing all of the adventure and imagination of the original production with it. The action-packed tale brings pirates, orphans and secret agents of the Queen together on the high seas where they do battle over a case of "starstuff," a substance that transforms ordinary things into magical things. Based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher appeals equally to adults and kids and boasts an all-star creative team. It was written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and directed by Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) and Alex Timbers (Rocky, The Pee-wee Herman Show). Learn More

A riotous comedy thriller steeped in the glamour of 1960s Hollywood, Die, Mommie, Die! stars playwright Charles Busch as Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, Angela becomes the prime suspect when Sol turns up dead. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela’s manipulative daughter convinces her “emotionally disturbed” brother that together they must avenge their father’s death … by killing their mother!
