Audiences still hoping to head to Neverland are in luck! Peter and the Starcatcher will transfer to off-Broadway's New World Stages following its acclaimed Broadway run at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Starcatcher will play its final Broadway perfomance on January 20. No dates or casting have been announced for the show's next incarnation, which already had a successful off-Broadway run in 2011 at New York Theatre Workshop.
Co-directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, the whimsical play currently stars Adam Chanler-Berat, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Matthew Saldivar. The show opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on April 15, 2012, and went on to earn five Tony Awards, including a trophy for original star Christian Borle. A national tour of the Peter Pan prequel is set to launch in Denver in August.
Adapted by Rick Elice from the Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson novel of the same name, Peter and the Starcatcher features a company of 12 actors portraying some 50 characters, all on a journey to answer the question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Refused To Grow Up?
