5 Things You Have to Do This Week

October 21, 2013

1. Peter and the Starcatcher
Tue, Oct 22 – Sun, Oct 27

Peter

“The Neverland you never knew” comes to life onstage in Peter and the Starcatcher—Rick Elice’s adaptation of the best-selling children’s novel. Billed as a “swashbuckling grownup prequel to Peter Pan,” the play employs a cast of 12 to portray upwards of 100 characters—including 13-year-old “apprentice starcatcher” Molly Aster (the play’s lone female character), Black Stache (a verbally challenged pirate with a hook in his future) and a nameless orphan destined for greatness. Not typically one to gush, The New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley called the five-time Tony winner a “blissful exercise in make-believe,” referring to its (low-tech) sinking of the H.M.S. Neverland as “the most enthralling shipwreck since James Cameron sent the Titanic to her watery grave in the late 1990s.” $26-$76, 7:30pm Tue-Thu, 8pm Fri, 2pm & 8pm Sat, 1pm & 6:30pm Sun, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
