    Peter and the Starcatcher: Theater Review

    The Bottom Line

    It will never be to the J.M. Barrie classic what "Wicked" has become to "The Wizard of Oz," but its inventive storytelling and irreverent humor give this "Peter Pan" prequel a whimsical charm.

    The "Peter Pan" prequel, commissioned by Disney Theatrical Prods., was adapted by "Jersey Boys" co-writer Rick Elice from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling 2004 children's adventure book

    NEW YORK -- Creative teams don't get much more heterogeneous than the one behind Peter and the Starcatcher. But in most respects, the motley crew bands together surprisingly well.
    Commissioned by Disney Theatrical Prods., the show was adapted by Jersey Boys co-writer Rick Elice from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling 2004 children's adventure book, which traces the backstory of Peter Pan. Roger Rees and Alex Timbers share directing duties, bringing classical theater smarts and downtown hipster attitude, respectively. Helping to inject vigorous physicality into the staging is movement director Steven Hoggett, known for his ruggedly distinctive choreography on Black Watch and American Idiot.

    While Disney is still mulling future plans, this play with music gets its first full-fledged outing at Off-Broadway's New York Theater Workshop, following a 2009 "Page to Stage" test-drive at La Jolla Playhouse.

    That should be interesting once it comes out to the Broadway Theaters.

      I loved the book(s) but still have to read the last one. I hope it is a big stage success so that it eventually comes out here to L.A. It should be a lot of fun just like the book was.
