The producers of Peter and the Starcatcher, the five-time Tony Award-winning play by Rick Elice, will celebrate the 10th annual International Talk Like a Pirate Day on Wednesday, September 19th, with a special “Stache Day” in honor of their own pirate, Black Stache. On the morning of September 19th, the first 100 fans in line at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre  with mustaches (real or fake!) will receive one free ticket for that evening’s performance.

Tickets (one per person) will be distributed at 10:00 AM on September 19th, and fans are encouraged to get creative with their ‘staches; Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson (authors of the book Peter and the Starcatchers, on which the show is based) and Peter and the Starcatcher’s Black Stache, Matthew Saldivar, will select the three best mustaches.  Those winners will receive a pair of tickets and backstage tour for that evening’s performance.  All tickets may be anywhere in the theatre and are non-transferrable.

Ever since Dave Barry mentioned “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” in his nationally syndicated newspaper column in 2002, what once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up.
