Come to the Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook to see the tour premiere of the Broadway smash hit “Peter and the Starcatcher,” through October 18, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside!
“Peter and the Starcatcher” was the toast of Broadway in 2012, winning five Tony awards and rave reviews. This play with music is a prequel to “Peter Pan,” and is for adult audiences. Based on the bestselling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and written for the stage by playwright Rick Elise, it is the story of how Peter Pan came to be a Lost Boy. A cast of actors portray over one hundred characters!
This character, the boy who never grew up, 13-year-old Peter is so neglected he hasn’t seen the outside world. It is all about flying, dreaming, adventure and growing up.
“It’s the most exhilarating storytelling in decades.” The New York Times “If the New York production was half as good as this one, it might still be running in the Big Apple.” Chicagoland Theatre Reviews
