Peter and the Starcatcher to Debut on Broadway in Spring 2012
Roger Rees and Alex Timbers will once again direct Rick Elice’s Peter and the Starcatcher, when the play with music makes its Broadway debut in Spring 2012 at a theater to be announced.
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the show will feature a company of twelve actors playing some 50 characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up? Casting will be announced at a later date.
Peter and the Starcatcher had its New York premiere Off-Broadway last season at New York Theatre Workshop. The Broadway production will reunite the entire creative team: Wayne Barker (music), Steven Hoggett (movement), Marco Paguia (music direction), Donyale Werle (scenic design), Paloma Young (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), and Darron L. West (sound design).
The Off-Broadway production received five Drama Desk nominations (and a win for Outstanding Music in a Play); two Obie Awards (for Direction and Design) and two Lucille Lortel Awards (for Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Choreography).
