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

I laughed from the first vibrant moment until the end. Talented, funny, hard working cast of 5 makes you think there were many more characters. Funny plot,great staging, inventive. Songs and music are akin to a rock opera,A must see!
<p>He’s New Jersey‘s first Superhero and he takes to the stage in this rock ‘n roll monster of a comedy. Thrown into a vat of toxic goo by two bullies, a mild-mannered science student named Melvin Ferd the Third is reborn as a one-of-a-kind environmental crusader, The Toxic Avenger! Armed with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, he’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming and woo the prettiest, blindest librarian in town. He’ll leave you laughing in the aisles as he rocks the house and saves the earth for all of mankind. The Toxic Avenger, based on the 1985 classic cult film by Troma Studios, features music and lyrics by David Bryan (keyboardist and founding member of Bon Jovi), book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) and is directed by John Rando (Urinetown).</p>
