‘Peter and the Starcatcher’ Sets a Closing Date
Peter and the Starcatcher, the five-time Tony® Award-winning play by Tony Award-nominee Rick Elice, has announced that it will play its final Broadway performance on January 20, 2013, ending its nearly year-long run.
Directed by Tony® Award-winner Roger Rees and Tony® Award-nominee Alex Timbers, Peter and the Starcatcher began performances on March 28, 2012 and opened April 15, 2012, and is playing at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).
“All of us involved with this show are extremely proud of its remarkable run on Broadway,’” said Nancy Gibbs, a lead producer. “When this journey began nearly ten years ago, the path to Broadway seemed all but impossible to traverse. Well, not only did we make it, but we’ve enjoyed every unlikely and wonderful step along the way.”
But, there is good news for those of you living outside of NYC. Next August, the show will start its national tour in Denver. The play’s Tony Award-nominated directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, will direct the touring production.
