Before Peter became The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, he lived an entirely different life as an unnamed, unhappy orphan before a remarkable girl encouraged him to find his true self. The Tony- winning Peter and the Starcatcher creates themagic that theatre is all about - for all ages. The prequel to Peter Pan is based on the childrens book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and freely adapted for the stage by Rick Elice. It was premiered in La Jolla in 2009 before it went to Broadway and was nominated for the Tony award for Best Play in 2012.
