Broadway's Peter and the Starcatcher to Close in January
The Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher will end its run at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on January 20, 2013. A national tour of the show will launch in August 2013, beginning at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver.
Based on the Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the production is a fanciful look into the origin of Peter Pan. It features a script by Rick Elice and direction by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers.
The cast is currently led by Adam Chanler-Berat, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Matthew Saldivar, and features Teddy Bergman, Arnie Burton, Matt D'Amico, Kevin Del Aguila, Carson Elrod, Greg Hildreth, Rick Holmes, Isaiah Johnson, Eric Petersen, Betsy Hogg, Orville Mendoza, Jason Ralph, and John Sanders.
The production won five 2012 Tony Awards for designers Donyale Werle (set), Jeff Croiter (lighting), Paloma Young (costumes), and Darron L West (sound), as well as for original company member Christian Borle's performance as Black Stache.
The creative also includes Wayne Barker (music), Steven Hoggett (movement), and Marco Paguia (music direction).
