November 1905

Maude Adams as Peter and Mildred Morris as Wendy in the first US production of Peter Pan in 1905. According to Eva Le Galliene, who played Peter in 1928, Maude Adams reduced Wedny's part by two-thirds, either by cutting her lines entirely or transferring them to herself, even though such lines were completely out of Peter's character. This can be verified by checking the Frohman Company's acting version. [For more on this, see Bruce K Hanson's "Peter Pan Chronicles", p141]
