    Effortless Flights of Fancy

    Ben Brantley

    April 15, 2012: They’re surfing the clouds at the Brooks Atkinson Theater, where “Peter and the Starcatcher” opened on Sunday night. And even inveterate fearers of flying are likely to find themselves following the folks onstage into altitudes where eagles get nosebleeds.

    Peter and the Starcatcher

    Melissa Rose Bernardo

    April 15, 2012: Orphans are having a great year on Broadway, thanks to the scrappy singing paperboys of Newsies and now the scruffy teenage shipmates anchoring Peter and the Starcatcher. (Just wait until this fall's revival of Annie.) Unlike most shows about parentless children, though, this cleverly produced Peter Pan prequel — adapted from a 2004 children’s book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson by Tony-winning Jersey Boys librettist Rick Elice — aims for the funny bone rather than the heartstrings.

    Pan show high on its own starstuff

    Mark Kennedy

    April 15, 2012: Try as it might – and it tries awfully hard – "Peter and the Starcatcher" needs a lot more pixie dust to fly.

    Peter and the Starcatcher: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    April 15, 2012: This adaptation of the Peter Pan origin story is rich in antic humor and theatrical invention, but the stardust loses potency and becomes a tad precious on a larger stage.

    NY Review: 'Peter and the Starcatcher'

    David Sheward

    April 15, 2012: Has "Peter and the Starcatcher," the dazzlingly fun riff on the Peter Pan legend that lit up the intimate New York Theatre Workshop last season, lost any of its luster in a trip to the Never Never Land of Broadway? When this clever and joyous entertainment opened last March, there were immediate murmurings about a Main Stem transfer. There were also fears that Rick Elice's adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's novel would lose its special charm in a cavernous Midtown theater. I'm happy to report that "Peter" has not given up a speck of its fairy dust–infused whimsy. This is a celebration of youth and of the power of theater to inspire children and adults alike.
