“In relating the back story of how a sullen, skeptical orphan became the eternal boy known as Peter Pan, ‘Starcatcher’ celebrates the leap of faith that occurs when we tell and believe improbable tales.” – The New York Times

On March 9, 2011, the Disney Theatrical Off-Broadway Production Peter and the Starcatcher opened at the New York Theater Workshop. Based on the bestselling book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the play gives the account of how Peter Pan became Peter Pan. It received mixed to positive reviews from critics, and was transferred to Broadway and opened on April 15, 2012. It garnered five Tony Awards, including one for Best Featured Actor in a Play for Christian Borle, and was nominated for Best Play. It starred Adam Chanler-Berat as Peter, Celia Keenan-Bolger as Molly, and Christian Borle as Black Stache.
