Anyone hoping for another NBC musical hate-watch were probably disappointed by Peter Pan Live! Thursday night.
It wasn't perfect by any means – switching between live singing and all those filmed ads killed just about any theatrical energy and flow well before the three hours were up – but the production was colorful and glitch-free.
Allison Williams of Girls made a much more committed Peter than Carrie Underwood did a Maria von Trapp in last year's endless Sound of Music Live!, and Christopher Walken's extremely peculiar Captain Hook was a triumph.
