TV Review: ‘Peter Pan Live!’

4 December 2014 11:22 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

About 10 minutes after the ratings for “The Sound of Music Live!” rumbled in, I (and no doubt a lot of others) immediately thought “Peter Pan.” Not because that musical is the equal of the Von Trapps’ tale, but because it combined a family-friendly story with the sort of daredevil flying stunts that reliably lure rubes to watch those Nik Wallenda specials – live, naturally, thanks to the spectacle and risk. By that measure, NBC likely won the battle during the strategy sessions, despite a woefully lifeless production that, the fancy wiring notwithstanding, never quite got off the ground.

The casting in these endeavors always commands a little too much attention, and while the choices in this case were hardly fatal given the abundance of shortcomings, they certainly didn’t help.

That began with Allison Williams, whose singing voice was perfectly fine, but seemed far less boyish – and buoyant – than other famous »
