PlayBlog   She's Flying! Cathy Rigby Chats With Playbill Video About Taking Off in Peter Pan's National Tour (Video) Tony Award nominee Cathy Rigby has taken her green tights out of storage to reprise her role as the title character, also known as the boy who wouldn’t grow up, in the national tour of Peter Pan. The tour, which launched this summer in Hershey, PA, will hit New York City this winter when it plays Madison Square Garden in December.


Here, Rigby chats about the national tour at a recent press event held at MSG. The Tony nominee sang and read to some young "pirates" and "pixies" from the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a non-profit organization helping kids facing life's obstacles.

The national tour, lasting into 2012, features some scenic changes to the production since its previous tour in 2005. The show is based on characters created by J.M. Barrie. Peter Pan’s classic score includes “I’m Flying,” “Neverland,” “I Gotta Crow,” “Wendy,” “Ugg-a-Wugg,” “Hook’s Waltz,” “Distant Melody” and more.

Directed by Glenn Casale, the cast also features Tom Hewitt (The Rocky Horror Show) as Capt. Hook/Mr. Darling; Kim Crosby (Into the Woods) as Mrs. Darling; Krista Buccellato as Wendy; Cade Canon Ball as John; Julia Massey and Jordyn Davis alternating as Michael; Desiree Davar as Tiger Lily/Liza; and James Leo Ryan as Smee.
