Recounting the more than century-long stage and screen history of J.M. Barrie's play Peter Pan, Bruce K. Hanson updates and expands his 1993 volume on "The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up." Hanson traces the origin of Barrie's tale through the first London production in 1904, to various British and American theatrical and film productions up to and including the stage versions of 2010. Included are excerpts of interviews with actresses Dinah Sheridan, Mary Martin and Sandy Duncan, all of whom portrayed Peter Pan on stage, and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, lyricists for the 1954 Broadway musical. The book features a wealth of rare photos, posters, programs and costume designs. An appendix lists virtually every actor who has performed a featured role in a London, Broadway or Hollywood production of Peter Pan from 1904 to the present.

Review:

Reviews of the first edition: "it would be impossible to write a book detailing every production of Peter Pan, but Hanson has done the next best thing. He concentrates on the major versions of the story, as play or musical, beginning with the first staging...Hanson is meticulous in giving the background of the actors, not only for this production, but for each subsequent one he discusses in his book, bringing a gallery of forgotten performers back to life...although Hanson's book makes fascinating reading from start to finish, its final 110-plus pages will probably hold the most interest for musical fans"--Max Preeo, Show Music Magazine; "the triumph of whimsy and magic over the more unseemly aspects of the human condition has ensured the legend's lasting success. The Peter Pan Chronicles lets readers momentarily recapture these ineffable themes even as they fly through their hands."--American Theatre; "this is an entertaining and fully researched account of Peter Pan's long theatrical and cinematic history."--Publishers Weekly; "I thoroughly enjoyed reading it...it is an astounding example of research and...love."--Deanna Durbin (former screen actress, singer); "years of diligent labor framed at last between the two hardcovers of this permanent volume that I'm sure will be the definitive statement on this subject for many years to come. The visual material is all wonderful."--Harvey Schmidt (composer of The Fantasticks, I Do, I Do, etc.); "Thank you for writing the Chronicles. Your book fills in so much even I hadn't known!"--Stewart Stern (screen writer of Rebel Without A Cause, Rachael, Rachael, etc.); "Very interesting and very well researched...is it coming out in London? If not, why not?"--Barry Norman (curator of The Theatre Musuem in London).
