A Little Bit of Broadway

Peter Pan

In 1954 the stage exploded with Pirates and Indians and Lost Boys when James M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan was turned into a musical. We are listening to the original cast recording, with Mary Martin as the boy who won’t grow up and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook.  Both won Tony's for their performance.  If you are old enough, you will remember seeing the production on tv.

We’ll finish the time with another “fairy tale” musical – Disney’s retelling of Hans Christain Anderson's The Little Mermaid.
