Ever since Dave Barry, the co-author (with Ridley Pearson) of the novel "Peter and the Starcatchers" (on which the play is based), mentioned "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" in his nationally syndicated newspaper column in 2002, what once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up. To see the inaugural video by Dave Barry himself, please Dave Barry Launches 'Talk Like a Pirate Day', and continue to check back on BroadwayWorld.com for new videos.
The imaginative play by Rick Elice tells the tale of an orphan who heads to a faraway land, where he finds love, friendship, and, ultimately, himself. "Peter and the Starcatcher" is comprised of a company of 12 actors playing more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?
Tickets for "Peter and the Starcatcher" are available by calling (213) 972-4400, visiting online at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org, or in person at the Center Theatre Group box office at the Ahmanson Theatre. Tickets range from $20 - $110 (ticket prices are subject to change). The Ahmanson Theatre is located at the Music Center, 135 N. Grand Avenue in Downtown L.A. 90012.
