Peter Pan: My First Lesbian Role Model

I know J. M. Barrie never intended Peter to be a girl, much less a lesbian. It was hardly a perfect fit then, but my childhood encounter with it remains a bright spot in my memory. Playing Peter was in many ways the beginning of my coming out process

Peter Pan Syndrome

Kristen Houghton | Posted 11.10.2014 | Fifty
Kristen Houghton

The charmingly boyish man who refuses to grow up will age just the same as the men who have careers, mortgages and families. He will grow older too, but with much less in his life. Peter Pan at 60 isn't nearly as adorable as at 20.

Jumping at one's own shadow is a perfect metaphor for living with post-traumatic stress disorder. A darkness that sets up permanent camp in your peripheral vision and won't go away, no matter how much sage you burn, or how many gods you pray to.

David Finkle | Posted 06.27.2014 | Arts
David Finkle

Somehow it should seem appropriate that Inventing Mary Martin is as corny as Kansas in August. But the kind of corniness prevalent in conceiver-writer Stephen Cole's revue, at the York, tributing one of Broadway's great musical comedy leading ladies, is never welcome.

If they were at all true to my generation, Topanga, Cory and Shawn would be in a polyamorous relationship. They would all still be living with their parents, Topanga would be the only one who was employed -- and she would be the one who was a teacher (not Cory).
