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.

Run, don't walk to this fantastic show!!! If I could have rated it higher, I would have! Acting is superb, with Ava Bogle as Emily, and Jill Renner as Evie. I can't remember when I last saw such emotional, and keenly poignant performances.
Small and quaint theater, scenic design was amazing for such a small space. Can't say enough, I recommend very highly. GO!!!
