A LOOK BACK: Cathy Rigby Talks Peter Pan
Cathy Rigby's success as a gymnast might have made the transition to playing
the flying boy-who-won't-grow-up a lot easier, but it was her background as
a mischievous kid who would leap off the roof with a homemade parachute that
made her perfect for the role. Some 25 years after her first performance as
Peter Pan, Rigby prepared to return to Neverland (this
time at New York's Theater at Madison Square Garden) by singing and reading
to some young "pirates" and "pixies" from the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a
non-profit organization helping kids facing life's obstacles.
