Humorist Dave Barry has been making people laugh for decades. For 20 years, Sunday papers across the country carried his Pulitzer-Prize-winning humor column, syndicated from the Miami Herald. He’s also the author of a long list of very funny best-selling books.
After a Tony-winning run on Broadway, “Peter and the Starcatcher” is currently on tour, with a stop in St. Louis next weekend. The musical play is a prequel to Peter Pan that tells the story of how Peter Pan became “the boy who never grew up.”
Playwright Rick Elice adapted the play from the book “Peter and the Starcatchers,” which was co-written by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry.
St. Louisan Ridley Pearson joined host Steve Potter in studio to talk about the play. Rick Elice and Dave Barry contributed to the conversation via phone, Elice from New York and Barry from Miami.
