“PETER PAN sparkles with fairy dust! Rigby has mastered the boy who wouldn’t grow up.” – Washington Post.
PETER PAN, written by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie (1860–1937), tells the story of a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up. He spends his endless childhood on the small island of Neverland leading his gang, the Lost Boys, on daring escapades. The show’s adventures beginwhen Peter teaches Wendy and her brothers to fly and invites them to come to Neverland.
Cathy Rigby’s name is synonymous with PETER PAN, having performed the role on Broadway since 1990 and having earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress. The former Olympic gymnast has also starred in two major revivals of PETER PAN in a National US Tour in 1990-91 and 1997-2000, and also in a 100th Anniversary Tour in 2004-06. Her other credits include the A&E Television Network Premiere of Peter Pan, which received 4 Emmy Award Nominations and one Emmy Award.
