CAA signs Elice

Theater names join agency's roster

Rick Elice, the just-minted Tony nominee who penned the play “Peter and the Starcatcher,” has signed on at CAA, joining a roster of legit names that have recently come aboard the tenpercentary including scribes Tarell Alvin McCraney and Erika Sheffer and Brit set and costume designer Christopher Oram.

Elice co-wrote the books for tuners “Jersey Boys” and “The Addams Family,” both with Marshall Brickman. His script for Peter Pan prequel “Peter and the Starcatcher” is based on the YA novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pierson; the show led Tony’s list of play nominees with a total of nine nods overall.

McCraney is a fast-rising young legit scribe whose trilogy “The Brother/Sister Plays” have been seen around the country and in the U.K. His latest play, “Head of Passes,” is gearing up for a spring bow at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater. He’s repped in the UK by Macnaughton Lord Representation.

Sheffer’s first play, “Russian Transport,” preemed Off Broadway in January in a well-received staging from the New Group. The writer also recently scored a new writing award from the Vineyard Theater (which gave the same kudo to McCraney in a prior year).

Oram’s design work can be seen on Broadway in the current revival of “Evita,” and past outings have included “Red,” “Frost/Nixon” and “Hamlet” toplined by Jude Law. In Blighty he’s repped by Michael McCoy at Independent Talent.
