Peter Pan LIVE

Peter Pan Live was extraordinary to watch. A Broadway play on TV, using commercial breaks for set changes or for the actors to get ready to do the next scenes as the stage managers rush the actors to be on time and not to mess up their lines. It was great to watch a famous play live on NBC.  The ratings were down from last year when The Sound of Music Live premiere on NBC year ago.

Allison Williams, actress, comedian, and musician. She stars as Marnie Michaels on the HBO comedy-drama series Girls. I love this show. It’s a guy thing. She’s get naked in some scenes, but I like it. And it’s funny. She did a fantastic job as Peter Pan. My question is? Why is Peter Pan a woman? Should Peter Pan be a man?  The name Peter is a man’s name. Jack Noseworthy (Peter in Jerome Robbins’ Broadway): He was the only to do it on Broadway, but he was an understudy. He was a singer, and a dancer and he looked like a boy when he got the role.

Why the ratings went down? Maybe people did not like the casting part of the Peter Pan? Do the people want Carrie Underwood back and make her to a boy? All actors have to audition for a part, she wasn’t given the part.  They probably did have male actors as Peter Pan when auditioning for the part. So they decided to pick Allison Williams and asked her “How do feel if we cut your hair and trim it to make you look like a boy?”

“What about my breast?” Allison Williams asked.

“Duct tape?” the casting agent said.

“Ok” Allison Williams said.

Did Christopher Walken messed up his lines? He probably saw his image as Captain Hook on the TV monitors. Nothing happen to the set. No mistakes. I guess. Probably the actors did messed up the lines and did not notices, but quickly got the lines right. Only one picked out when analyzing the live broadcast on my DVR of the movie. When Peter comes in through the window and the camera pans to the adult Wendy, the Steadicam operator and camera can be seen.

John Allyn and Jake Lucas are casts as brothers. Alanna Saunders played Tiger Lilly.

What will NBC produce next?
