For those of you who haven’t gotten around to seeing “Peter and the Starcatcher” at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, now might be your last chance to see it on Broadway. The producers announced yesterday that the five-time Tony Award-winning production is slated to move to Off-Broadway’s New World Stages in the spring. The final Broadway performance will be held Sunday, Jan. 20.
“We have had an amazing run on Broadway, and audience demand continues to grow,” said lead producer Nancy Nagel Gibbs in a statement. “In fact, last week we had our highest grossing week ever. Our transfer to New World Stages allows the ‘little show that could’ to continue to inspire and enchant even more audiences.”
The production was written by Rick Elice, and directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers.
Dates and casting information will be announced shortly.
“Peter” is one in a long-line of Broadway shows that have found renewed life at new World Stages. In recent years, the Off-Broadway theater complex has welcome Main Stem imports such as “The 39 Steps,” “Avenue Q,” and “Million Dollar Quartet.”
