Peter and the Starcatcher 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). In this Tony®-nominated adaptation inspired by the Royal Shakespeare Company’s The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, in which everybody famously played everyone and everything, a company of twelve actors creates the teeming world of ships at sea and island kingdoms. 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. A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels the play was conceived for the stage by directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and written by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker.
