Disney books party for ‘Peter’

Publication celebrated with cast

Disney Editions’ newly published script of “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a rare thing for a contempo play: It’s an annotated edition — just like an edition of Shakespeare or the Talmud, as scribe Rick Elice cheekily points out.

He was talking up the book at a June 5 shindig celebrating the publication, an event held during post-show hours at the apartment of Disney Theatricals’ Thomas Schumacher. Guests included “Peter” cast members Christian Borle, Adam Chanler-Berat and Celia Keenan-Bolger as well as Tracie Bennett, Norm Lewis, Joel Grey and Julie Taymor.

Elice also spent some time marveling at the gentleman’s club air of Schumacher’s swank pad — and at the guy sitting at the grand piano on the mezzanine, discreetly providing the underscoring for the event.
