Fly By Night is about fate, love and loss. Out of those, the second topic provides for more entertaining discussions, so I emailed Allison Case, Adam Chandler-Berat and Patti Murin and asked them some questions about just that.

Catch This Starcatcher Before it Flies Off

While the play Peter and the Starcatcher is essentially the backstory of Peter Pan (kind of like what Wicked is to The Wizard of Oz), don't expect lighthearted tunes and choreographed flying.

Whether in its infant stages or a full-blown epic poem like Homer's Iliad, storytelling is an art form that develops over time and goes through many revisions.

The one female in the stellar cast is Celia Keenan-Bolger. I had the opportunity to chat with her to talk about Peter and the Starcatcher, playing a child once again, marrying fellow actor John Ellison Conlee and the rest of her talented family.

It's hard to believe how much can be done by a 12-person cast, especially considering how fast the show moves. There isn't a moment to pause and consider the characters' intentions. They share their thoughts and fears directly with us.
