Peter and the Starcatcher
Winner of 5 Tony Awards, PETER AND THE STARCATCHER opened to critical acclaim and wildly enthusiastic audience response on Broadway in the spring of 2012. Radio Mouse Entertainment (which is co-owned by Jason E. Grossman) also co-produced the successful U.S. tour during the 2013-14 season, which brought the play’s magic, merriment, and mayhem to delighted audiences of all ages across the country, playing engagements in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Charlotte, NC.
Based on a best-selling book, Peter and the Starcatcher tells the imaginative story of how a nameless boy became Peter Pan, and how the Lost Boys, Captain Hook, and the ticking crocodile all came to be. Written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and co-directed by Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) and Alex Timbers (The Pee-wee Herman Show), the play was commissioned by Disney Theatrical Productions.
Peter and the Starcatcher got rave reviews from critics, including Ben Brantley of The New York Times, who called it “the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades” and “a blissful exercise in make-believe” Entertainment Weekly said it was “an absurdly funny fantastical journey”, and Time Out NY wrote “this show soars deliriously high and gloriously far”.
