An original adaptation for television...
20 April 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This version of _Peter Pan_ is an original adaptation for television. It is not to be confused with the 1954 Mary Martin Broadway production that was broadcast live at least twice in the fifties and on tape in 1960, at last preserved for posterity.

This 1976 television special does not feature the Charlap & Leigh and Styne, Comden & Green score or Jerome Robbins' staging.

This _Peter Pan_ is a disappointing version that offers a lackluster performance by Mia Farrow in the title role and a forgettable one by Danny Kaye as Mister Darling and Captain Hook. Somehow the distinguished John Gielgud and Julie Andrews found themselves contributing, respectively, the narration and the vocal performance of one song to this second-rate effort.

The charmless score was by Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse.
