Kurt Peterson, JWP and Jane Bergére presented a new play, Capture Now Off Broadway at The Theatres at 45 Bleecker, 45 Bleecker Street in New York City this past season. The play was both written and performed by Josh Jonas and directed by Larry Moss.
Capture Now is the story of the relationship between two young brothers, the "coming of age" of the older brother and the love of the family and friends who help move him through difficult times... an understatement.
The play takes place on Long Island in the late '80s-early '90s and features music of cool groups that the brothers share a passion for as they learn to "Rock."
