Peter Pan the Musical

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

The beloved musical "Peter Pan," starring Mary Martin in the title role and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook, opened at the Winter Garden on Broadway on this date in 1954. The show continued until Feb.26, 1955. And on March 7, 1955, the cast reunited for the live television production. Some 65 million people tuned into the telecast.
