Catch a falling star, put in your pocket, and walk it over to Off-Broadway.

The producers of the acclaimed Broadway show Peter and the Starcatcher will follow the example of many Broadway producers before them by taking their about-to-close production and transferring it to Off-Broadway's New World Stages.

Off-Broadway performances will begin this spring, although casting and official dates have not yet been announced. Broadway performances continue through Jan. 20.

The entire Tony Award-winning design team will design the New World Stages production.

A couple of highly praised, quality productions have received further extensions.

Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre Company is extending the run of August Wilson's The Piano Lesson one final time, now to Jan. 20. It had previously been extended three times, to Jan. 13.

And the 50th-anniversary production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which opened to critical raves Oct. 13, 2012, will get an additional month of performances, now playing to March 24.
