Favorite story of all time - PETER PAN.
My first intro was the Disney movie and I was smitten. I would wait by my window for Peter to take me to Neverland.
I read the book very early on and was scandalized that Tinkerbell used the word "ass."
I memorized every song from the Mary Martin version of the musical.
a bow and arrow years before Katniss.
(That's me on the right.)
Okay, you can stop laughing now.
Over the years, I've sought the Peter Pan story in every way, shape, and form.
This was a lovely musical bunraku puppet version (where you see the puppeteers dressed in black with hoods manipulating the puppets) with a gorgeous original score of Irish music.
Going on even as we speak, there's a stage version of Peter and the Starcatchers called Peter and the Starcatcher that is a blast and a half.
I can't get enough of the boy who never grew up.
I'm still waiting by the window.
