Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby

Jacob, Ruston, Theresa and I all got together to go watch Peter Pan performed at the Pantages.  Tonight Peter Pan was being played by Cathy Rigby, who first performed the role back in 1974 at age 20.  She's still performing the role 40 years later at age 60.  We were curious to see how everything was going to go.

We all met up at the Pantages. 

But first, dinner!  Right across the street from Pantages is a Chicken Dijon, a rotisserie chicken and greek restaurant.  This is our second time eating here right before a show and I think we're going to make it a tradition. 

Before we knew it, it was time to head over for the show.  Excuse the poor quality of the photos.  I can't bring my camera into the theater so we had to make do with the little point and shoot.  

Having seen the movie by Disney, plus read the original book by J. M. Barrie, I was curious to see how the play would go.  I thought the play was cute.  I enjoyed all the new songs I hadn't heard before and Cathy Rigby did a fantastic job.  For being 60, she still has a lot of her gymnastic background intact.  Whether it was doing splits, doing a handstand and walking on her hands, or just flying around on the wire, she was every bit the boy who wouldn't grow up.

Ruston and I both enjoyed it overall.  Jacob and Theresa, it just wasn't their cup of tea.  Oh well.  on to the next adventure.
