Twitter Reacts To Allison Williams In 'Peter Pan Live!' & It Turns Out The Internet Accidentally Fell For Her
Last time NBC took on a live, theatrical version of a beloved classic, twitter took The Sound Of Music and ran with it in a way that truly was one of 2013's most epic musical moments. So it only follows that Peter Pan Live was anticipated to follow in its footsteps, filling twitter with mirth and...well, probably a lot of snark. So how did the show — and its audience — live up to expectations? More particularly, how did Twitter take Allison Williams' performance as little rascal Peter Pan?
Though the productions took a few minutes to actually get to the Peter part of things, reactions abounded the second Williams opened her mouth. First it was her accent that found itself the target of Twitter's quips — then it was her singing, though the latter was more concerned about whether or not she was lip synching. So how'd she do on the whole? Or, rather, how did the mass of Twitter critics she wanted not to hate-watch think she did on the whole?
People had a lot to say. Do they ever not? The consensus: Williams' Pan was better than The Sound Of Music, whatever that means to you.
Here is a collection of what twitter was saying Thursday night about Williams' performance:
The Girls comparisons were inevitable
The Williams-in-drag quips were present
There were critics
There were fans
Albeit reluctant ones
