Note - the characters are listed in parentheses, although demos may only have one voice present. On this demo there are two songs not in the script - they are part of a new draft. "City Night/Midnight Serenade" replaces "Bad For Good" in the script - it begins with Wendy, numb and melancholy and yearning; and it then includes the entire seduction/abduction sequence involving Wendy, Peter and The Lost Boys; as well as Hook, Doctor Darling and Mother. "Love Duet" replaces "I'd Do Anything For Love, But I Won't Do That" in the script.
