Here’s All You Need to Know About Peter Pan Live

Pete1

So tonight, NBC aired a live musical version of Peter Pan starring Allison Williams (daughter of NBC Nightly’s News‘ Brian Williams; co-star of the HBO drama Girls) as the titular Peter Pan, and Christopher Walken (acclaimed actor; everyone’s favorite crazy uncle) as Captain Hook. As you can probably guess, it was three hours of weirdness, bad acting, and pure camp.
