The five-time Tony Award-winning (and fan favorite) Peter and the Starcatcher held its off-Broadway reopening on Monday, March 18 at New World Stages. Inspired by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's prequel to Peter Pan, the play-with-music, written by Tony nominee Rick Elice and codirected by Tony winner Roger Rees and Tony nominee Alex Timbers, completed a successful run at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre on January 20.
Leading the new off-Broadway company are original cast members Rick Holmes as Black Stache and Jason Ralph as "Boy," with Nicole Lowrance (Dividing the Estate) as Molly Aster. Broadway cast members Kevin Del Aguila, Matt D'Amico, and Evan Harrington are also featured in the company, along with Edward Baker-Duly (The Wizard of Oz), Josh Grisetti (Rent), Alex Hernandez (Richard III), Jon Patrick Walker (High Fidelity), Jose Restrepo (Grease), Nate Miller, Andrew Mueller, Jordan Geiger, Joanna Howard, and Graham Stevens.
The transfer to off-Broadway brings Peter and the Starcatcher back home, where it began its unlikely rise at New York Theatre Workshop. The entire creative team of Peter and the Starcatcher, which includes Wayne Barker (Music), Steven Hoggett (Movement), Marco Paguia (Music Supervision), Donyale Werle (Scenic Design), Paloma Young (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design), and Darron L West (Sound Design), reunites to mount the New World Stages production.
