A Play by Rick Elice, Music by Wayne Barker. Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
This Tony-winning musical upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). Young Peter and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by evil King Zarboff. The boys are discovered at sea by a precocious Starcatcher-in-training named Molly who realizes a mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin contains precious cargo; so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. The journey takes a thrilling turn when the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair… and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
Peter and the Starcatcher received a rave review from The New York Times, with Ben Brantley writing: “When the H.M.S. Neverland goes down in “Peter and the Starcatcher,” it’s the most enthralling shipwreck since James Cameron sent the Titanic to her watery grave in the late 1990s . . . The cast is, with no exceptions, wonderful . . . It’s a performance that you might classify as over the top, but only in the sense that the entire production is. With grown-up theatrical savvy and a child’s wonder at what it can achieve, “Peter and the Starcatcher” floats right through the ceiling of the physical limits imposed by a three-dimensional stage. While there’s not a body harness in sight, like those used to hoist the title characters of “Mary Poppins” and “Spider-Man,” this show never stops flying.” (Source: Wikipedia)
