NBC is Making 'Peter Pan Live': But Who Will Play Peter, Wendy?
Remember how well The Sound of Music Live! was received? We don't either, but apparently the execs at NBC's office have amnesia because they're trying the stage to screen gig again this time with Peter Pan. "We’re very pleased to be underway on Peter Pan as our next live holiday musical for the whole family,” said Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman. “In the hopes that lightning strikes twice, we think we’ve landed on another great Broadway musical ... that is a timeless classic for all audiences, young and old, who just never want to grow up.”
None of the roles have been cast yet, but Greenblatt "joked" that he wants Miley Cyrus for Peter. Though that would certainly be an interesting take on J.M. Barrie's work, we've made our own choices for the roles.
