    The play came through Dallas this summer with Kathy Rigby in the lead role! She was fantastic and stuck around after to sign autographs. We took my niece who loved it, and got an autograph.

    this is Rigby's last go round with Peter Pan - hard to believe that she is in her 40s and as athletic as ever!

    Was not my favorite play - of course over the years have seen the movie, and cartoon many times

    I enjoyed the Cathy Rigby play-loved her flying over the audience.

    My mother got our first television set in the very early 1950's so we could see the televised performance of Mary Martin in Peter Pan! I also saw her on stage in that role when I was a young girl. She was fantastic.

    I also saw Sandy Duncan on stage some years back doing the role. She also was excellent.

    It's a fun story and even the Walt Disney version is appealing. But songs from the stage performance like "I've Got A Crow" and "I Won't Grow Up" are classics. When my children were little, I sung the lullaby song to them often at nights. Both of them. Mother Darling's and Peter's.

    Enjoyed the memories thinking about these things. Thanks!

    Never saw teh play. I do, however, have the dvd with Mary Martin. I also saw the PBS broadcast of Cathy Rigby some hears ago.

    Loved both of them. If it came to OCPAC, Pantages, or other local theatre, I'd see it in a heartbeat.
