New York, NY (2/24/2012) – The producers of Peter and the Starcatcher, a new play by Tony® Award-nominee Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), have announced a revolutionary ticket pricing structure. All tickets for Peter and the Starcatcher performances through April 29th are $99 (orchestra and front mezzanine) and $59 (mezzanine), when purchased by the first preview on Wednesday, March 28th. The show, which is directed by Tony® Award-winner Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) and Tony® Award-nominee Alex Timbers (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, The Pee-wee Herman Show), has an official opening night set for Sunday, April 15, 2012 at The Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).
“When was the last time you were able to buy the best seats in a Broadway house for under $100 without a discount code? We wanted to give theater-goers the opportunity to see this early, for affordable prices, so that they can be the first on their block and tell all their friends to come buy tickets,” producer Nancy Gibbs said about the pricing structure.
In this innovative and imaginative new play, based on The New York Times best selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, 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? This 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.
