‘Peter Pan Live!’ lands on NBC

Chuck Barney Tribune New Service

Don’t miss

“Peter Pan Live!”: You’ll want to set your sights on Neverland during this bold new television adaptation of the classic stage musical about a boy who just refuses to grow up. Allison Williams (“Girls”) takes on the high-flying title role, while Christopher Walken plays Peter’s cranky nemesis Captain Hook. The original Broadway score has been supplemented with four new songs and, we assume, sprinkled with plenty of pixie dust. 8 p.m. Thursday, NBC.
