PETER PAN LIVE!
I did not watch last year’s Sound of Music Live. However, I am excited for this year’s show: Peter Pan. Pan was the first musical to interest me in the theater. I loved the songs, the story, and most of all, I loved Captain Hook. I was obsessed, especially with Cyril Ritchard’s portrayal in the 1960 Mary Martin version that I wore out on VHS. I watched it incessantly.
I feel like Christopher Walken is a truly inspired choice to play ole Jimmy Hook. I think he looks absolutely terrific in the getup, and I can’t wait to see what he does with it. Allison Williams looks great as Peter, and I love Christian Borle and Kelli O’Hara. December 4 cannot come soon enough!
