'Smash' actor to headline 'Starcatcher'
Penned by Rick Elice, the production will star "Smash" cast member Christian Borle, as well as Adam Chanler-Berat and Celia Keenan-Bolger, who appeared together off-Broadway in the show early last year.
"We are overjoyed to have this incredible company back together," producers Nancy Nagel Gibbs and Greg Schaffert said in a joint statement. "And we are very grateful that Christian Borle was, in the end, able to work around his commitments to the TV series 'Smash' so that he can reprise his role as Black Stache."
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the play features a company of 12 actors playing more than 100 characters and telling the story of how Peter Pan became the boy who never grew up.
Co-directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, the play is to begin previews on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre March 28, with an official opening night set for April 15.
