PLAYBILL VIDEO WEEK IN REVIEW: Lindsay Mendez Prepares for Wicked, the Tony Award Nominees, Backstage at Vanya and Sonia and Starcatcher Off-Broadway
02 Jun 2013
After a multi-Tony-winning Broadway run, Peter and the Starcatcher returns to its Off-Broadway roots at New World Stages. Penned by Rick Elice and under the direction of Alex Timbers and Roger Rees, the imagination-fueled play with music is based on the Dave Barry-Ridley Pearson novel and tells the story of Peter Pan before he became the boy who would not grow up.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
