Synopsis: 

Rick Elice, co-writer of the Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys and The Addams Family, along with actor-director-author Roger Rees, probably best known for his Tony Award-winning performance in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, and Drama Desk and OBIE Award-winning director Alex Timbers, founder and artistic director of les Freres Corbusier and director of the highly-acclaimed production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, have created an imaginative new play based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatchers. In it, a company of 12 actors play some 50 characters on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter become The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up?

Neverland goes down in “Peter and the Starcatcher,” the blissful exercise in make-believe that opened on Wednesday night at the New York Theater Workshop, it’s the most enthralling shipwreck since James Cameron sent the Titanic to her watery grave in the late 1990s (and picked up a crate of Oscars).

    Jennifer Farrar

    March 10, 2011: Generations of children since 1904 have wondered where Peter Pan came from, why he never grew up and why he could fly. Those questions and more about J. M. Barrie's classic character were answered in a 2004 prequel, "Peter and the Starcatcher," written for children by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.
