Recounting the more than century-long stage and screen history of J.M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan, Bruce K. Hanson updates and expands his 1993 volume on “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.” Hanson traces the origin of Barrie’s tale through the first London production in 1904, to various British and American theatrical and film productions up to and including the stage versions of 2010. Included are excerpts of interviews with actresses Dinah Sheridan, Mary Martin and Sandy Duncan, all of whom portrayed Peter Pan on stage, and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, lyricists for the 1954 Broadway musical. The book features a wealth of rare photos, posters, programs and costume designs. An appendix lists virtually every actor who has performed a featured role in a London, Broadway or Hollywood production of Peter Pan from 1904 to the present.
