NEVER GROW UP
How did Peter Pan learn to fly? How did Captain Hook lose his hand? Find out the answers when Obie winner Alex Timbers (director of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and actor-director-writer Roger Rees co-direct the prequel to J.M. Barries classic story Peter and the Starcatcher. Adapted from the book by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry, the story takes you on an adventure with Peter Pan and his wily gang of orphans as they gather something called starstuff. Though Disney is known for its grand musical productions, this is the first time the company is doing a stripped-down play with little scenery and a dozen actors playing roughly 50 characters. After all, bigger does not always mean better (ahem, Spider-Man).
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 3 p.m.; Sundays, 2 & 7 p.m.; Tuesdays, 7 p.m. Starts: Feb. 18. Continues through April 3, 2011
