The fantasy — inspired by characters created by J.M. Barrie — is written by 2006 Tony Award-nominated librettist Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers. In the play, according to NYTW, "A company of 12 actors plays some 50 characters — all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter become The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up?"
