Peter and the Starcatcher will close on January 12, 2014. The show began off-Broadway, transferred to Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it played from April 2012-January 2013, and then transferred back off-Broadway to New World Stages in March 2013. At the time of its closing, the production will have played a combined 645 performances on and off-Broadway.
Peter and the Starcatcher, which won the 2012 Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for Favorite New Play and five Tony Awards, is an imaginative prequel to the story of Peter Pan. Directed by Alex Timbers and Roger Reese and written by Rick Elice, the play with music features a company of 12 actors playing more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?
"In the current Broadway landscape, a nearly two year run of a new American play is rare," lead producers Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Greg Schaffert, Eva Price and Tom Smedes said in a statement, "so we're grateful to the show's many fans for embracing us like they have."
The current cast of Peter and the Starcatcher features Rick Holmes (Black Stache), Nicole Lowrance (Molly), Jordan Geiger (Boy), Edward Baker-Duly (Lord Aster), Matt D’Amico (Slank), Kevin Del Aguila (Smee), Jimmy Keiffer (Alf), Josh Grisetti (Fighting Prawn), Alex Hernandez (Captain Scott), Nate Miller (Ted), Andrew Mueller (Prentiss), Jon Patrick Walker (Mrs. Bumbrake), Joanna Howard, Evan Johnson, José Restrepo and Graham Stevens.
