Nobody fell. The pirates danced, the Lost Boys sang, Wendy got her wish, Tiger Lilly saved the day and Tinker Bell’s CG sparkle got viewers to believe, and clap.
“Peter Pan Live” telecast became a tweet-along event, leading Twitter’s trending topics as viewers weighed in on everything from the sets to the dog who played the Darling family’s faithful Nana.
The production — directed by Rob Ashford and Glenn Weiss and exec produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron — was stocked with Broadway vets including Kelli O’Hara, Christian Borle and Taylor Louderman. Minnie Driver served as narrator and limned the role of grown-up Wendy in the closing moments.
A full review will be posted after the West Coast airing.
