    Peter and the Starcatcher

    Tossing aside unfortunate adult notions, Peter and the Starcatcher embraces the bonds of camaraderie, love and duty in this Victorian adventure. Adulting is hard! Join Peter on this quest to protect something important — starstuff, and the cheerful spirit of youth itself, in our fanciful rendition of Peter and the Starcatcher.

    Known as the whimsical prequel to Peter Pan, a young orphan is sold into servitude aboard the Neverland-bound ship, the Wasp. But bleak realities of the Victorian age and industrial practices cannot force Peter to grow up, and his enthusiasm is infectious — compelling every young person he meets (and the audience too) to join this ageless adventure.

    Boldly staged in Paramount’s intimate Copley Theatre, a magical place “made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust,” you will leave the empire and set sail for exotic lands with Peter and the precocious Molly Aster, a Starcatcher apprentice. The play captures the spirit of J.M. Barrie’s classic with wordplay, swashbuckling escapades and Paramount’s flair for the dramatic.

    Fans of Wendy and Peter will trace the genesis of Peter Pan and the other iconic characters, including the notorious Captain Hook, in the enchanted world of Neverland.

    See for yourself why Peter and the Starcatcher was the buzz of New York and was nominated for nine Tony Awards and took home five of the coveted distinctions.

    Limited tickets are available for $50.50
