In her farewell performance as Peter Pan, Tony® Award nominee and two-time Olympic Gymnast Cathy Rigby takes flight in the 100th Anniversary of the immortal James M. Barrie tale, Peter Pan. This timeless musical masterpiece flies into the Civic Center Music Hall for eight great performances beginning February 14th.
Cathy Rigby’s name is synonymous with Peter Pan, having played the part on Broadway, on a major National Tour in the 1990-91 Season, in the revival in 1998 and in the Emmy Award winning A&E Special, for which she received critical acclaim. The Los Angeles Times proclaimed, “Cathy Rigby perfectly personifies Peter Pan in this remarkably re-imagined production,” while the Boston Globe declared, Cathy Rigby is remarkably talented … she sings wonderfully, with precision, with range, with style … she is irresistible. Rigby will lift you out of your seat!” The Seattle Times heralded, “With its wonderful cast, crackerjack stagecraft and robust choreography, the show leaps off the stage and into the heart!”
Based on several chapters that appeared in James M. Barrie’s 1902 novel, “The Little White Bird,” the play Peter Pan was first performed in London in 1904. The present musical comedy version of Barrie’s classic first appeared in 1954 starring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard in the leading roles.
Peter Pan recounts the adventures of the three Darling children as they fly away from their nursery into the magic and wonder of Neverland. It is in Neverland that they encounter the cunning and evil Captain Hook, villainous pirates, a crafty crocodile and a sprightly fairy, Tinker Bell.
The score, a joint effort by Moose Charlap, Carolyn Leigh, Jule Styne and Betty Comden and Adolph Green remains a favorite of children and adults alike. Peter Pan features such classics as “I Gotta Crow,” “Neverland” and “I’m Flying.”
