Peter and the Starcatcher New York Tickets

Peter and the Starcatcher New York Tickets


It is a dream come true that New York audiences no longer need to make believe that they are sitting in the audience of Peter and the Starcatcher, after the show left Broadway in January. The Tony Award winning play (nominated for nine and winner of five) is now playing Off-Broadway at New Word Stages. Whether audiences select a matinee or evening show, now is the time to sprinkle their lives with stardust and watch the cast of Peter and the Starcatcher shine bright like the stars!


After years of wondering what took place prior to the story of Peter Pan (or also known as The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy), New York audiences will discover the world where it all began in Peter and the Starcatcher. The incredibly humorous play is based on a novel co-written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson; thereafter, it was adapted for a theatrical stage production by Rick Elice. The first act begins with an ensemble speaking directly to the audience to provide a snapshot of what is in store. As expected, the New York audiences will be encouraged to make use of their imagination. The aim is to imagine that the story is set in the British Empire. Just like that, with a snap of an actor's fingers, the audience is transported on stage to a port in the British Empire. At that port, a trunk that was meant for the Queen's ship was secretly switched with one meant for the Neverland ship. There is also a small group of orphans who were sold and leave aboard the Neverland ship. After struggle on and between the two ships, a boy (self-named Peter) cleverly tricked the thieving pirates into thinking that they had in their possession the stolen trunk when the boy had actually switched it. The act ends with a storm at sea that destroys the ship. The second act starts with mermaids singing an upbeat account of their historical transformation from fish to mermaid. The group is stranded on an island following the storm at sea. While speaking to a mermaid, Peter learns that there is "stardust" that will make dreams come true. After learning of such dust, and in an effort to save the trunk and get it where it belongs, Peter covers himself in the magical dust. Unfortunately, when the tale ends, Peter is unable to leave the island and is set to remain a boy forever. As it just so happens, he never trusted grownups anyway.


What audiences may not know is that the play is actually a prequel to the story, Peter and Wendy (also known as Peter Pan), written by the well-known Sir James Matthew (J. M.) Barrie. J. M. Barrie was a Scottish author and dramatist. His breakthrough work is the play that inspired Peter and the Starcatcher. The original Peter, as characterized by J.M. Barrie, was inspired by a family with whom he met. The family consisted of all boys and J.M Barrie is known to have unofficially adopted the boys following the loss of their parents.

In addition to watching the play, audiences will have an opportunity to see Peter and the Starcatcher come to live on the silver screen, as there is presently a motion picture entitled, Peter and the Starcatchers, in development. The film is written by Jesse Wigutow, directed by Gary Ross and produced by Walt Disney Pictures.


The New York cast of Peter and the Starcatcher includes: Rick Holmes as Black Stache, Nicole Lowrance as Molly, Jordan Geiger as Boy/Peter, Edward Baker-Duly as Lord Aster, Matt D'Amico as Slank, Steve Rosen as Smee, Josh Grisetti as Fighting Prawn, Jimmy Kieffer as Alf, Nik Walker as Captain Scott, Nate Miller as Ted, Andrew Mueller as Prentiss, Jon Patrick Walker as Mrs. Bumbrake. The Boy/Peter is a self-named orphan, who, in addition to distrusting adults, becomes the hero of the story. Molly is a young starcatcher apprentice who wants more than anything to prove herself to her father to follow in his starcatching footsteps. Black Stache is a relatively smart Pirate who is curiously seeking an proper protagonist to become what he considers a great villain. Smee is faithful of Black Stache and the first mate on the Neverland ship. Lord Leonard Astor is a Molly's starcatcher father. It seems throughout much of the play that he is most concerned the mission associated with the Queen's trunk. Ted is one of the Boy/Peter's orphaned buddies who took to Molly as a mom-like figure. Prentiss is another orphan and pal of Peter who is quite sarcastic. Mrs. Bumbrake is the proper English nanny of Molly. Alf is one of Neverland's salty dogs. Captain Scott leader of the Wasp. Audiences will also find an ensemble cast that play narrators, mermaids, islanders and a whole cast of other creatures in this production of Peter and the Starcatcher.


The play first premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse in California in 2009. Following its time in California, it opened Off-Broadway at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2011. The play found success and soon opened on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. After 319 regular performances, it closed on January 2013. In March 2013, reopened Off-Broadway at the New Word Stage. The creative cast includes: Rick Elice (Playwright), Roger Rees (Director), Alex Timbers (Director), Wayne Baker (Composer), Steven Hoggett (Movement), Donyale Werle (Set Design), Paloma Young (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design) and Darron L. West (Sound Design) and other incredibly individuals who are equally apart of the exemplary group. The production is made possible by Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Greg Schaffert, Eva Price, Tom Smedes and the Disney Theatrical Group. The creative team and cast is certainly stardusted and ready to make one's dreams come true… all one needs to do is believe.
