'Peter and the Starcatcher' to live off-Broadway

The Associated Press, Wednesday, January 2, 2013, 8:18am (PST)

NEW YORK (AP) — Broadway's boy who wouldn't grow up is not going away quite yet.

Producers of the play "Peter and the Starcatcher" said Wednesday that the production will have a new life after it vacates the Brooks Atkinson Theatre later this month.

It will be produced this spring at New World Stages, an off-Broadway complex of theaters that has housed other former Broadway shows like "Avenue Q," ''Million Dollar Quartet" and "Rent"

The inventive "Peter and the Starcatcher," adapted by "Jersey Boys" co-writer Rick Elice from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling 2004 children's adventure book, tells the story of how an English orphan became Peter Pan.

The Tony Award-winning design team of "Peter and the Starcatcher" will design the New World Stages production. Casting will be announced later.
