Peter Pan

From ChatGPT

"Peter Pan" is a musical based on the play by J.M. Barrie about a boy who never grows up and his adventures in the magical world of Neverland. The music and lyrics were written by Jule Styne, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green, and the show premiered on Broadway in 1954. The musical tells the story of the Darling children - Wendy, John, and Michael - who are whisked away to Neverland by the mischievous Peter Pan and his fairy companion, Tinker Bell. In Neverland, they encounter a colorful cast of characters, including the villainous Captain Hook and his band of pirates, the Lost Boys, and the mermaids. The show is known for its memorable songs, including "I'm Flying," "Never Never Land," and "I Won't Grow Up." The original Broadway production starred Mary Martin as Peter Pan, a role she would reprise several times over the years, and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook. "Peter Pan" has been adapted into several different versions over the years, including a popular 1960 television production starring Mary Martin and a 2014 live television production with Allison Williams as Peter Pan and Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Today, "Peter Pan" is regarded as a classic of the American musical theatre, and its themes of childhood, imagination, and the power of belief continue to inspire and delight audiences of all ages.}

Trivia & History

The 2024 revision by Larissa FastHorse (which was prepared for the 2024 tour) addressed the treatment of Native Americans in the show, including the song “Ugg-a-Wugg”. The problem was first addressed in the 2014 television production by Amanda Green and it was meant to go into the standard performing version, but it was never incorporated.
