Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mike Cummings
Filmed before a live audience, this video adaptation of Peter Pan captures the magic of the long-running Broadway stage show on which it is based. Former American gymnast Cathy Rigby portrays Peter, as she did in the Broadway hit in the 1990s. Those who have never seen her perform will be delightfully surprised with her versatility. Not only does she frolic and dance with Olympian athletic ability, but she also sings marvelously (rumors that she lip-synchs are untrue) and speaks with a bloody good British accent to boot. But above all, it is her exuberance as the high-flying, ever-mischievous Peter that captivates the audience. When she zooms through the window of the Darling family's nursery for the first time, dive-bombing and flip-flopping, she establishes a joyful rapport with the audience that does not let up until the final curtain comes down. Oh, yes, there are those who prefer the legendary Mary Martin as Peter, maintaining that she played the role with more poignancy during her Broadway run in the 1950s. But, aw heck -- the Rigby version is fun, and kids seem to love it. The 104-minute video, directed by Glen Castle, features movie-quality special effects and wonderful song-and-dance numbers, including "I'm Flying" and "I Won't Grow Up."

Bought as a present for my teen who is a big Peter Pan fan. She loved it as a little kid and was very excited to receive. We enjoyed watching as a family. One of our favorite movies.

This is the best version of peter pan i have ever seen!!!!! Cathy Rigby is awsome! I also cant wait to se Peter Pan ( 1924 ) and ( 1960)! Even though ( 1924) is silent, I still want it. P.S. Where can i get Peter Pan with Mary Martin on Dvd!?!?! I've been looking for it everywhere!

Peter Pan is a great musical that never gets old to watch and makes you feel like a kid from beginning to end. I first fell in love with this show when I was 10, and I bought it and loved it just as much now that I'm 18. Cathy Rigby is the perfect Peter Pan for the stage (so much better than Mary Martin). It's amazing to watch her fly across the stage while singing and doing tricks in the air. The flying scene between her and the children to Neverland gives me chills everytime. Watching this fun and enjoyable show makes me feel like a child. I laughed, I cried, and I wished I had the ability to fly. People of all ages will love Peter Pan. It's the most magical show you will ever see!

This is such a great video! I bought it as a present for someone who loves the Peter Pan plays that have been done over the years and Cathy Rigby does an absoultey spectacular job! The sets are exquisite, the energy phenomenal, and the musical numbers are fantastic!
