The original 1954 Broadway production of Peter Pan won a Tony Award for its two stars - Cyril Ritchard, as Captain Hook, and the legendary Mary Martin, as Peter Pan. Adapted from J.M. Barrie's 1904 play (and his novelization of it - Peter and Wendy), Peter Pan shares the adventures of Wendy, John and Michael Darling, as they join Peter and Tinkerbell on a trip to Neverland, where they come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bumbling pirates and Peter's villainous arch-enemy, Captain Hook. The music is by Mark "Moose" Charlap, and Jule Styne. The lyrics were written by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
