Use of the word "Glittering"[edit]

Am I right in thinking that the word "Glittering" could be changed for another such as successful? "Glittering" may qualify under the banner WP:PEA. Just a thought. -- Cassianto (talk) 18:44, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

LOL. We use the word successful and success a lot. I haven't looked at this yet, but people are trying to find synonyms. Yes, words like "rave", "glowing" and "glittering" are too peacocky, but it would be nice to find some synonyms that are useful. What adjectives do the sources use? All the best. -- Ssilvers (talk) 07:34, 15 January 2012 (UTC)


This word is too idiomatic. Given that this is an international encyclopedia, I suggest that we use "while", since that is acceptable everywhere. -- Ssilvers (talk) 07:36, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. I'll set about changing. Incidently I went with "offered the role of" because she must have been offered it to have played it. But yes, I see your point too!

Peter Pan[edit]

Peter Pan didn't become a pantomime until the late 1980s, so Zena Dare could only have performed in the original play. Panto versions only appeared in the late 1980s, after the copyright first expired in the UK in 1987, when they were no longer any restrictions. --Stelmaris (talk) 09:31, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

More important than merely spotting the error, you identified the production in which she did appear and added a ref to a WP:Reliable source. Well done. -- Ssilvers (talk) 14:12, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
