Faces & Names: Allison Williams to play Peter Pan for NBC musical
Allison Williams will take to the air as Peter Pan for NBC.
“I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about 3 years old, so this is a dream come true,” Williams said. “It’s such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I’m very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team. And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?”
Williams, a classically trained singer, has recorded songs for the “Girls” soundtrack. She also has appeared on sitcoms “The Mindy Project” and “The League.”
NBC aired the Mary Martin-starring Broadway production of “Peter Pan” on live TV in 1955.
