Phyllis Newman Releases FLYING TO NEVERLAND WITH PETER PAN Book
Lyrics of two beloved songs from Peter Pan I'm Flying by Carolyn Leigh & Morris (Moose) Charlap and Never Never Land by Betty Comden, Adolph Green & Jule Styne), are transformed into a magical picture book sure to enchant the musical's legions of new and returning fans. Acclaimed songwriters Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Carolyn Leigh know a thing or two about crafting songs that touch hearts and imaginations and endure for generations. They hit one of their many pinnacles with this pair of lovely odes to "a place where dreams are born" and the joys of flying--whether over a sleeping city or inside one's very own bedroom.
An exuberant cast of young theater and entertainment industry favorites; Matthew Schecter (Newsies, Broadway),Bailey Grey (Séance, NYC Opera) Noah Marlowe (30 Rock, NBC-TV) and Ellis Gage (James and the Giant Peach, Goodspeed Opera House) help bring the story to life with their performances of I'm Flying and Never Never Land,and actress Phyllis Newman, wife of the late Adolph Green, contributes a touching, personal introduction to the book. With this and luminous illustrations, including a lavish gatefold of the "flying" scene, this is an extraordinary book to give, to cherish, to share.
