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.

- Based in part on the shooting of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx in 1999.
Laura Coker in association with the Whitefire Theatre presents the world premiere of Firehouse by award-winning playwright, Pedro Antonio Garcia, directed by Bryan Rasmussen, consulting producer Robert "Bobby" Moresco (co-writer of Crash).
Based on true events, this life and death story of the moral choices of firemen explodes when a young girl dies and the firehouse is blamed.
Firehouse is a re-examination of the Amadou Diallo issue set inside a South Bronx firehouse. A probationary, rookie fireman responds to a fire rescuing a veteran firefighter, in lieu of a 12 year-old girl, who dies as a result. The community is outraged; mass demonstrations ensue. The rookie fireman, a former cop who had previously been tried and acquitted -– along with three other cops -- for the murder of an unarmed Puerto Rican, claims to have not seen the young girl.
Is the rookie fireman telling the truth, or is this a case of a cover-up involving race?
Cast: Kamar de los Reyes, Gerald Downey, Jossara Jinaro, Ed Morrone, Elvis Nolasco, Bryan Rasmussen, and Jon Southwell
