by Harmony Wheeler - Mar 26, 2014

"Peter and the Starcatcher" catches more than starstuff with its mosaic style and resourceful staging. Directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and writer Rick Elice manage to use ladders, flashlights and other pulled-together, everyday items to soar the magic to heights stronger and more believable than ever. Clap if you believe! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Delightful PETER AND THE STARCATCHER at the Peabody Opera HouseBWW Reviews: Delightful PETER AND THE STARCATCHER at the Peabody Opera House
by Chris Gibson - Mar 10, 2014

Local author Ridley Pearson, along with Dave Barry, crafted an interesting 'prequel' to the story of Peter Pan with their entertaining novel PETER AND THE STARCATCHER. The stage production of this tale, written by Rick Elice, is a similarly imaginative effort that utilizes a relatively small cast, with just about everyone playing multiple roles, and a frenetic pace that captures the same qualities that distinguished the original work. An engaging touring production with a very talented cast played the Peabody Opera House this weekend (March 7-9, 2014), and it was well worth the trip. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Strong Cast and Inventive Stagecraft Buoys Slow-Going STARCATCHERBWW Reviews: Strong Cast and Inventive Stagecraft Buoys Slow-Going STARCATCHER
by Veronica Bruscini - Feb 26, 2014

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER has all the right ingredients to be a standout production: a solid literary foundation and engaging storyline, a top-notch cast of actors, and some truly inventive props and staging. Unfortunately, these elements never quite come together as cohesively as they should, and the overall presentation suffers from the script's lack of consistent focus. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SHNSF's PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Enchants Now thru December 1BWW Reviews: SHNSF's PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Enchants Now thru December 1
by Linda Hodges - Nov 10, 2013

Swashbuckling adventure and hilarious hijinks await patrons of SHNSF's Curran Theatre with 5-time Tony Award winning Peter and the Star Catcher, which has sailed into San Francisco for a magical turn before returning to Neverland or other parts unknown. This clever prequel to J.M. Barrie's beloved Peter and Wendy is powered by starstuff (which figures prominently in the play) and a high-energy cast that is the tightest ensemble I've seen in a long time. Good, old-fashioned storytelling, reliance on late, 19th century stagecraft -- and two directors (Roger Rees and Alex Timbers) whose imaginations were allowed to run amok -- have created a wildly enjoyable and enchanting show. Playing now through December 1, Peter and the Star Catcher is one show you will definitely want to see. (more...)

by David Clarke - Oct 16, 2013

As the British Empire was approaching it's zenith, J. M. Barrie struck a long-lasting cultural nerve with his character of Peter Pan. The imaginative boy first appeared in the 1902 novel The Little White Bird. In 1904, the character's most beloved adventure premiered as a play entitled THE BOY WHO WOULDN'T GROW UP. 111 years later audiences are still fascinated by the character. Currently, in Houston, the highly lauded and award garnering PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, a prequel to the Peter Pan story we all know, is sending Houston audiences on fanciful flights of whimsy.
