BWW Review: FOR PETER PAN ON HER 7TH BIRTHDAYBWW Review: FOR PETER PAN ON HER 7TH BIRTHDAY
by Keith Waits - Mar 15, 2016

In the opening monologue of For Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday, Ann (Kathleen Chalfant), the eldest of her siblings, reminisces about a part she played as a young woman; the part was Peter Pan; she doesn't know why people laugh when she tells the story, she says; she is the image of Mary Martin, or at least how you might remember Mary Martin to look at 70, strong features, long neck, short cropped blonde hair combed back, warm and cheerful with something intelligent underneath.
