“Peter Pan Live!” Could Maybe Just Possibly Be Somewhat Good

Okay so anything could be better than last year’s The Sound of Music Live! but Peter Pan Live! could actually maybe just possibly be somewhat good. Just hear us out! Allison Williams has a surprisingly strong yet sweet voice even if she doesn’t act as the larger than life Peter Pan. Christopher Walken seems alright as Captain Hook, even if it doesn’t look like he’s trying. And Christian Borle, playing Mr. Darling and Smee respectively, looks perfectly crazy. The set is bright and glossy albeit fake (it almost has a Munchkin Village Wizard of Oz feel). Is it perfect? No. But will it be better than we were dreading it to be? Yes. Sure, it’s not the best compliment we can give but succeeding our low expectations is more than we thought we’d say. Peter Pan Live! could even be a sweet little surprise. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
