Peter and the Starcatcher
Rick Elice, co-writer of the Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys and The Addams Family, along with actor-director-author Roger Rees, probably best known for his Tony Award-winning performance in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, and Drama Desk and OBIE Award-winning director Alex Timbers, founder and artistic director of les Freres Corbusier and director of the highly-acclaimed production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, have created an imaginative new play based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatchers. In it, a company of 12 actors play some 50 characters on a journey to answer the century-old questions: How did Peter become The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up?
