Theater Talk welcomes author/critic David Kaufman and actress Sondra Lee who discuss the subject of Kaufman’s latest book, “Some Enchanted Evenings: The Glittering Life and Times of Mary Martin.” One of Broadway’s greatest performers, Martin (1913-1990) is still beloved by millions of baby-boomers for her starring role in the musical “Peter Pan,” first broadcast on NBC in 1954. Ms. Lee, who appeared in that show as Tiger Lily, reminisces about her brilliant and elusive co-star, who was a powerhouse on stage but a mystery to most of those who worked with her, once the curtain went down.
