Story

What Is the Story of Peter and the Starcatcher?
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.

Reviews

A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"The production’s ace is Christian Borle, whose gift for physical comedy allows him to express malevolence, cunning, clumsiness and clownish mischief through a body and face seemingly made of rubber."

The Hollywood Reporter

David Rooney

"Alex Timbers and Roger Rees' spirited production of Rick Elice's play is that rare kind of theatrical event that can appeal equally to kids — who will be captivated by the sentimental, action-packed plot — and adults — who will admire its imaginative theatricality."

AM New York

Matt Windman

"Unlike most shows about parentless children, this cleverly produced 'Peter Pan' prequel aims for the funny bone rather than the heartstrings."

Entertainment Weekly

Melissa Rose Bernardo

"The extravagantly resourceful ensemble members of 'Peter and the Starcatcher' have almost nothing in the way of modern machinery to support their sky-scraping journeys. What they do have is some ordinary rope, a couple of ladders, a few household appliances, two toy boats and, most importantly, one another. And they have you, dear theatergoer, because in this ecstatic production you’re as important a part of this process as they are."
