A success when it premiered in 1991, the stage musical Peter Pan starring Cathy Rigby has toured the world. All the elements are in good form for this video production shot at the Mirada Theater in 2000 for the A&E Network. An adaptation of the famous 1954 musical directed by Jerome Robbins and starring Mary Martin, this new version is lasting proof that J.M. Barrie's tale of the boy who would never grow up is one of the kingpins of family entertainment. Some new songs have been added to the fabulous Moose Charlap-Carolyn Leigh score (which includes "Tender Shepherd," "I Gotta Crow," "I'm Flying," and "I Won't Grow Up"). But the biggest asset to this production are the spectacular flying sequences: Peter even soars over the audience at times. Martin was a stronger actress in a close-up, but Rigby is magical with her athleticism and spark, most notably in a percussion-filled song and dance number "Ugh-a-Wug." With comedy and derring-do, lavish sets, fabulous costumes, and a hissably good villain (Paul Schoeffler as Captain Hook), Peter Pan has plenty to charm nearly everyone from age 4 on up. The DVD also contains three sing-along songs and a behind-the-scenes featurette with the cast. --Doug Thomas

As well as being the author of the greatest of all children's plays, Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie also wrote sophisticated social comedy and political satire. The Admirable Crichton and What Every Woman Knows are shrewd and entertaining contributions to the politics of class and gender, while Mary
Rose is one of the best ghost stories written for the stage. For this edition, the texts of these plays have been newly edited and are supplemented with an in-depth introduction and detailed annotations.
