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

Goldstar got us great seats, in the front row!
BUT, they REALLY need to work on this play. The actors were young and cute and there was lots of sexy action. Unfortunately, the story line is very hard to figure out and follow. When the end came, no one in the audience realized it! The actors had to say, "OK, you can leave now!"
That tells it all.
Quotes & Highlights
- The show's Los Angeles run was a hit on Goldstar, winning the Roar of the Crowd award.
Rock of Ages is a rock musical set in Hollywood in 1986, when it was all about big chords, big dreams and…big hair! It blends the traditions of musical theater with the joy, energy and passion of a rock concert, and was inspired by the rising nostalgia for the 1980s, its timeless music and the classic “hair bands” whose sonic power filled the airwaves and the clubs on L.A.’s Sunset Strip. The show explores the pursuit of dreams: some come true, some are cut short and some change along the way. No matter what, the persistence of the human heart is what matters…so "Don’t Stop Believing!"
Songs in the show include:
- "We Built This City" - Starship
- "Too Much Time on My Hands" - Styx
