(AP) Broadway's boy who wouldn't grow up is not going away quite yet.

Producers of the play Peter and the Starcatcher said Wednesday that the production will have a new life after it vacates the Brooks Atkinson Theatre later this month.

It will be produced this spring at New World Stages, an off-Broadway complex of theaters that has housed other former Broadway shows like Avenue Q, ''Million Dollar Quartet and Rent

The inventive Peter and the Starcatcher, adapted by Jersey Boys co-writer Rick Elice from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling 2004 children's adventure book, tells the story of how an English orphan became Peter Pan.

The Tony Award-winning design team of Peter and the Starcatcher will design the New World Stages production. Casting will be announced later.
