If you’ve ever wanted to design or wear a Peter Pan costume on Broadway, this may be your chance.
In an extremely clever and charming Halloween promotion, the producers of Peter and the Starcatcher, the five-time Tony® Award-winning play by Rick Elice which tells the backstory of Peter Pan, announced last week that the show will host a post-performance Halloween costume party right there on the Broadway stage at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street) on Tuesday, October 30, 2012.
Both the young and the young at heart are encouraged to come to Peter and the Starcatcher’s 7:00 p.m. performance on October 30, 2012 in their best Peter Pan-inspired attire. After the show, ticket-holders dressed in costume will be invited on stage to meet the cast and participate in a group photo.
Directed by Tony® Award-winner Roger Rees and Tony® Award-nominee Alex Timbers, Peter and the Starcatcher began performances on Wednesday, March 28 and opened to rave reviews on Sunday, April 15, 2012. Tickets are now on sale through January 6, 2013. The production recently took home five Tony® Awards, the most of any play of the past season, including Best Scenic Design (Donyale Werle), Best Lighting Design (Jeff Croiter), Best Costume Design (Paloma Young), and Best Sound Design (Darron L West).
The play is based on The New York Times bestselling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, with a company of twelve actors plays more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? The epic origin story of one of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved characters proves that an audience’s imagination can be the most captivating place in the world.
Due to the Halloween week, there will be no Wednesday night performance on Halloween itself (October 31, 2012). Instead, there will be a 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. performance on Sunday, November 4, 2012.About the Show’s Creative Team
