Children’s Literary Salon: Peter and Peter from Page to Stage

The Children’s Literary Salon at the Children’s Center at 42 nd Street is pleased to announce our event on Saturday, March 12th at 2:00 p.m. Please note the date!!!  We’re having two in one month, which is just nutty, but this is just too cool to pass up.

From Page to Stage: Two Peter Pans and Their Creators

Take advantage of this chance to meet the creative minds behind two different plays about Peter Pan showing here in New York:   Peter and the Starcatcher and Peter and Wendy . Sit down and have an in-depth conversation with Julie Archer, co-creater and designer and Liza Lorwin, co-creator, director and producer of Peter and Wendy along with Rick Elice, author of the new play Peter and the Starcatcher and Ridley Pearson, one of the authors of the original book .

Peter and the Starcatcher , an imaginative new play by Rick Elice ( Jersey Boys, The Addams Family ) and directed by Roger Rees ( The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby ) and Alex Timbers ( Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson ), is based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Peter and the Starcatcher performs now through April 3 at New York Theatre Workshop.

Peter and Wendy , a beloved adaptation from world-renowned experimental theater company Mabou Mines, tells the story of Peter, Wendy and the Lost Boys through original Celtic music, breathtaking bunraku-style puppetry and the OBIE Award-winning performance of Karen Kandel. From the creative team of adaptor Liza Lorwin, designer Julie Archer, director Lee Breuer and composer Johnny Cunningham, Peter and Wendy performs May 6 – 22 at The New Victory Theater.

The Children’s Literary Salon is a monthly gathering of enthusiasts of children’s literature.  This program is for adults only.

This event will take place in the South Court Auditorium.
