Following in the footsteps of last year’s live production of The Sound of Music, NBC is now bringing another Broadway classic to the small screen, also done as a live version Thursday night on NBC.
It is the beloved 1950s Peter Pan that originally starred Mary Martin on Broadway and became a perennial television special back in its day.
With a book by the original author J.M. Barrie, this production comes from Craig Zadan and Neil Meron who have cast it with some new stars, including Allison Williams (Girls) as Peter and some Broadway stalwarts, including Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, Kelli O’Hara, and Christian Borle.
