New York, NY (08/02/12) The producers of Peter and the Starcatcher, a new play by Tony® Award-nominee Rick Elice, have announced today that a new block of tickets are now on sale, through January 6, 2013. Directed by Tony® Award-winner Roger Rees and Tony® Award-nominee Alex Timbers, Peter and the Starcatcher began performances on March 28, 2012 and opened April 15, 2012, and is playing at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).

The production recently took home five Tony® Awards, the most of any play this season, including Best Scenic Design (Donyale Werle), Best Lighting Design (Jeff Croiter), Best Costume Design (Paloma Young), and Best Sound Design (Darron L West).

In this innovative and imaginative new play, based on The New York Times best selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, a company of twelve actors plays more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?  This epic origin story of one of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved characters proves that an audience’s imagination can be the most captivating place in the world.

The cast of the acclaimed production includes Adam Chanler-Berat (Next to Normal), Celia Keenan-Bolger (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Matthew Saldivar (The Wedding Singer), Teddy Bergman (Seven Minutes in Heaven), Arnie Burton (The 39 Steps), Matt D’Amico (Fizz), Kevin Del Aguila (Jacques Brel...), Carson Elrod (Reckless), Greg Hildreth (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) Rick Holmes (Spamalot), Isaiah Johnson (The Merchant of Venice), and David Rossmer (Don’t Quit Your Night Job), Betsy Hogg (Fiddler on the Roof), Orville Mendoza (Pacific Overtures), Jason Ralph (Collin Theatre Center’s All’s Well That Ends Well), and John Sanders (Mamma Mia! National Tour).

The creative team of Peter and the Starcatcher includes: Wayne Barker (Music), Steven Hoggett (Movement), Marco Paguia (Music Direction), Donyale Werle (Scenic Design), Paloma Young (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design) and Darron L West (Sound Design).

Peter and the Starcatcher is produced on Broadway by Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Greg Schaffert, Eva Price, Tom Smedes, Disney Theatrical Productions, Suzan & Ken Wirth/DeBartolo Miggs, Catherine Schreiber, Daveed Frazier & Mark Thompson, Jack Lane, Jane Dubin, Allan S. Gordon/Adam S. Gordon, Baer & Casserly/Nathan Vernon, Rich Affannato/Peter Stern, Brunish & Trinchero/Laura Little Productions, Larry Hirschhorn/Hummel & Greene, Jamie deRoy & Probo Prods./Radio Mouse Ent., Hugh Hysell/Freedberg & Dale, and New York Theatre Workshop.

The performance schedule for Peter and the Starcatcher is as follows: Through August 26, 2012: Monday – Thursday at 7:00 PM, Wednesday at 2:00 PM, Friday at 8:00 PM, Saturday at 2:00 PM & 8:00 PM.  Beginning August 27, 2012: Tuesday – Thursday at 7:00 PM, Friday at 8:00 PM, Wednesday at 2:00 PM, Saturday at 2:00 & 8:00 PM, Sunday at 3:00 PM.

The show began its journey to the stage in 2003 when Disney Theatrical Productions president Thomas Schumacher discovered the first Barry and Pearson book while it was still in galleys, and its development has been shepherded by DTP ever since.  With just a few scenes outlined, the project received its first lab in 2007 at Williamstown Theatre Festival under the direction of Rees and Timbers.  A full length version of the play was then written by Elice and developed in a Page to Stage production at La Jolla Playhouse in the winter of 2009.  Following further revisions, the play received its first fully staged production in March 2011 at NYTW where it opened to rave reviews and was extended due to popular demand.

Tickets ($59 - $129) are currently available via Ticketmaster.com or in person at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre box office (256 West 47th Street).  For more information on group offers (12 or more people), call 877-321-0020 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  A ticket lottery, open to the general public, takes place outside the Brooks Atkinson Theatre beginning two hours before each performance.  Patrons can enter their names into the lottery, with an official drawing an hour and a half prior to curtain. Each winner may purchase up to two tickets at a price of $27 each (cash only).

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR PETER AND THE STARCATCHER

“Sensational!  Showbiz at its most infectious!”

-- Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Hysterical! Peter and the Starcatcher is a madcap production, filled with silly puns, hip jokes and sophisticated zaniness!”

-- Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press

“Mr. Rees and Mr. Timbers have created a theatrical world that’s so high-spirited, so inventive, so smart – it’s a hell of a lot of fun!”

-- Jesse Oxfeld, New York Observer

“A rollicking good time!”

-- Melissa Rose Bernardo, Entertainment Weekly

“Endlessly imaginative!”

-- Matt Windman, AM NewYork

“A treasure chest of pleasures!”

-- Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

“Magical!  An infectious balance of broad gags with cheeky adult humor. In an era of mainstream entertainment in which audience imagination is too rarely a requirement, it's a breath of salty sea air.”

--David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
