Peter and the Starcatcher

Metropolis Performing Arts Centre
111 West Campbell Street Arlington Heights

The five-time Tony-winning show that The New York Times called "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades," Peter and the Starcatcher is the swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan. Inventive stagecraft and an imaginative story come together to reveal the origins of "the boy who wouldn't grow up" in this madcap music-filled adventure. The play is an action-packed journey through Neverland that brings pirates, mermaids, orphans and secret agents of the Queen together on the high seas. Based on the bestselling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this production of Peter and the Starcatcher at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights weaves an enchanting coming-of-age tale that's bound to appeal to your entire crew.

Theatre By Numbers - Somewhat Recommended

"...But, when it comes down to it, no matter how good the performances of the actors, or the beauty of the set, the show barely rises to the level of entertainment that can be had by lounging on the couch at home on standard network TV."

Around The Town Chicago - Recommended

"...This twelve member cast ,many of them playing a multitude of roles (even the leads), is having a ball, as is the audience in this rather silly and cleverly told story about a young orphan (the boy who becomes Peter) searching to find a home and a family of his own. He, with several others, is being held captive on a ship bound for Rundoon where he meets a young girl, Molly ( Sarah Cartwright is a sensational find), and together they have the adventure that binds them together and sets the pattern for the future. I can't tell you this part, as I hate to ruin "happy endings"."

Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

"...Peter and the Starcatcher is a night of relatively clean fun. Kids might not understand the references or follow the plot well, but adults young and old will forget their troubles and have a great time. This reviewer can heartily recommend this production."
