Peter and the Starcatcher: A Sustainable Smash Hit

June 11, 2012 § Leave a comment

Peter and The Starcatcher, based off of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson‘s prequel to J. M. Barrie‘s Peter Pan, is more than just a Tony-winning success. Two of it’s five Tonys were for Best Scenic Design and Best Costume design, two awards that are impressive enough as is. However, the fact that these two awards denote the scenery and costumes as the best of the year, it should be noted that not only are they the top of the top – they’re sustainable too.

That’s right. Donyale Werle’s sets are made almost exclusively from sustainable materials. The ship and other set pieces are made from recovered lumber, and decorated with everything from old silverware to painted rope, plastic cups, and more, and Paloma Young’s costumes add to that mix with kitchen implements, old plastic bags, and more.

I could go into detail, but I’m just going to let Ms. Werle tell you herself. Check her out here:
