Hooray for NBC bringing another musical to TV
4 December 2014 | by david-569See all my reviews

Yes, hooray for NBC bringing a musical to television. What is old is new again. Mega props for the production.

Production-wise, very nice. Pleasant. Captivating. Well done across multiples of scenes.

Now the nit picking picking of nits.

The first scene fell flat. This is straight forward theater 101 stuff... the first scene needs to pop. To establish. This looked glossed over, from direction to the preparation and involvement of the actors. Gave the first scene a D+. The firsts scene should have received far more attention, from the actors to the staging, and camera work.

Next, and this is stating the obvious. Do not sent a commercial actor to do the work of a stage actor. Ms Williams is lovely, nay... beautiful. It was impossible to hide her beauty inside Peter Pan. Her interviews were warm fuzzies, including her backstory of as a kid her attachment to Peter Pan, her dad, all that. All very nice. She is also not a stage actor and it again, shows. As it did in Sound of Music. Do not send a commercial actor to do the job of a stage actor. It simply does not work. Rarely has. Likely rarely ever will. The difference between those who have had stage training and experience vs. the non's is glaring. I for one would far prefer a lesser known stage personality and experience over TV personalities. It does not work, and did not work here. One could drill down into Ms William nuances of performance and character but.... best to say Ms Williams, take the time and gain stage experience for the next 10 years. The *it* thing of stage experience would come into place.

Mr. Walken was however an exception. He did fairly well. Fun to watch him and transcend his commercial personality with her performance.

The fake English accents... people, they do not work. Newsflash for future efforts at any level... don't do it. Don't try to fake it. It doesn't work and it is distracting. Very. It gives pause in the brain while watching for entertainment.

The choreography by Jerry Robbins was and will always be cute and fun.

Overall enjoyable. And Pluuuuuuuuuuuze, keep bringing musicals to the television. As said, what is old is new again, and can be wonderful.
