A very good musical version of Peter Pan, and deserves a DVD release
18 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Peter Pan is such a timeless story, and I have yet to see a Peter Pan adaptation that was bad. This underrated musical production is no exception. A couple of scenes with the Lost Boys are under-rehearsed somewhat and the Marauders Rock sequence could have been more foreboding(Mia Farrow doesn't really convince either as someone pretending to be Hook/a spirit, she doesn't even disguise her voice), but on the most part the drama and staging is a lot of fun and has a good amount of energy and nostalgia. The rustic colours in the sets are appealing, the sets take you into the story and the costumes are fitting for the characters. The songs are not as good as those from the Mary Martin and Cathy Rigby versions or as memorable, but it is still a pleasant and very well-orchestrated score and the best songs Growing Up, Who Needs a Mother, the children's prayers and Hook's song in the Marauders' Rock scene are fun. The song on the Jolly Roger is a little overlong, but has some very clever references and lyrics and Danny Kaye sings the heck out of it, his top A flat at the end was pretty good. The writing flows really well with some nice bits of humour(who can't help love Smee and Starkey's reactions to Peter calling Hook a codfish?), and people will appreciate the general faithfulness that this version has to the book. Some of the dialogue is almost lifted straight out of the pages of the book. The performances are very good. John Gielgud's narration is very distinguished and eloquent, and Julie Andrews' singing over the credits still sounded angelic then. Virginia McKenna is lovely as the mother, the Lost Boys are spirited(look out for a young Nicholas Lyndhurst), the Darling children(especially Briony McRoberts' Wendy) bring a great deal of charm and the pirates are fun to watch generally. Paula Kelly is the sexiest Tiger Lily you'll probably see and her and the Indians' dancing is impeccable. Mia Farrow is suitably boyish and athletic as Peter and brings out his complexities well, she is a capable singer too. The Captain Hook of Danny Kaye was the one that stood out,- maybe there's bias as Kaye was a talented performer and Hook is the book's most interesting character- he is in good voice and he brings menace and gusto to the role, not exactly complex but more subtle than the (still excellent) Hooks in the Rigby and Martin- that use a different score- versions. All in all, very good and deserves a DVD release in the future, it is really nice to see that people remember it and are fond of it, on IMDb and on Youtube. 8/10 Bethany Cox
