13 Questions We Have After Watching Peter Pan Live!

Peter Pan Live!

It's an annual tradition two whole years strong: NBC pulls out some of the stops and puts together a live singalong stage production of a popular musical for all of the Internet to snark at. Last year, it was Nazis versus Carrie Underwood and that guy from True Blood in a live production of The Sound of Music. Thursday, Allison Williams put on the green leather leggings and wig of the boy who never wanted to grow up and Christopher Walkencut off his hand to play Captain Hook in Peter Pan Live! 

Those looking for a spectacle were not disappointed! There were technicolor crocodiles, prosthetic hook-limb fist bumps, very, very old "boys," and ads for a lil' mom-and-pop store called Wal-Mart. Yet as complete and fulfilling as Peter Pan Live! was, we couldn't help but get wonder about a few questions that stuck in our craw. So we put together the 13 questions we had after watching NBC's Peter Pan Live!

It helps that Peter's fantastical fairy-tale trappings are an easier sell, even to the loaded-for-snark Twitter audience, than the leaden mechanics of last year's more uneven The Sound of Music Live! (But still, what was NBC thinking, flashing those "Tweet With Us!" banners?)

The show's titular lead, Allison Williams, is using a break in rehearsal to survey her surroundings. An ecstatic grin spreads across her face, making her nearly unrecognizable from Marnie, the guarded character she's played for the past three seasons on HBO's Girls. You can hardly blame her: The massive soundstage — where the two-hour event will be performed live on Dec. 4 — has been transformed into a... read more
