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.

Well, the one woman show was well acted and entertaining but would have limited appeal since it is the story about a jewish woman born in the US and then moved to Israel. It is basically a comedy and would be appealing mostly to Israelis.

- "Ebullient! Josephson is a winning presence, and her impersonations of pushy parents, showbiz types and Israeli 'playas' land on target!" —Los Angeles Times
- "An accomplished performance! Hilarious ... Beneath the comedy lies a serious undercurrent stemming from the ongoing war in the Middle East." —LA Weekly
- "Josephson's boundless energy and desire to share her story transform her narrative from the traditionally cathartic autobiographical tale to one that is inspirational." —Backstage.com

New Eyes explores the universal themes of self-esteem, family, identity and cultural differences. Yafit Josephson portrays more than 18 characters from more than 5 different countries as she conveys her riveting and uplifting story, as she sees the world, and it sees her, through New Eyes.
Yafit Josephson (Actress & Co-Writer) was born in Los Angeles and raised in Ramat-Hasharon, Israel. As a daughter of an Israeli filmmaker, who produced two classic Israeli movies, Charlie Va'hetzi and Hagiga Ba'Snuker, Yafit was exposed to the entertainment industry at an early age. As a little girl, she recalls looking at the movie set pictures of her father's films and imagining herself as an actress. She started practicing by reciting famous lines from both of the movies, as all Israelis do to this day, and promised to herself that she would pursue acting professionaLly one day. At age 18, she began to serve in the Israeli Defense Force as part of her mandatory service to her country. In 2003, after two years of service, Yafit decided to move to Los Angeles to study acting and pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an actress. Shortly after, Yafit got accepted to the USC School of Theatre with a full scholarship. Throughout her time at USC, she acted in a number of productions, including The Threepenny Opera, The Ash Girl, Our Country's Good, The Vagina Monologues, Medea and Pentecost. Yafit wrote and performed two solo performance pieces, The Skies of Tel-Aviv and I've Gotta Go, which describe her journey as an Israeli soldier. Yafit's recent role was with The Jewish Hebrew Stage, where she played the lead role of the Prime Minister, Praxagora, in the Israeli play Memshelet Nashim (Women in Council).
