Peter Pan Live...Who is watching??

Magic is in the air on the Bethpage, Long Island, set of the upcoming production of Peter Pan Live! Make that magic realism. The show's titular lead, Allison Williams, is using a break in rehearsal to survey her surroundings. An ecstatic grin spreads across her face, making her nearly unrecognizable from Marnie, the guarded character she's played for the past three seasons on HBO's Girls. You can hardly blame her: The massive soundstage — where the two-hour event will be performed live on Dec. 4 — has been transformed into a Neverland tailor-made for the forever young.

Elsewhere on the premises are treasures like the Jolly Roger — the ship where Captain Hook (played by Christopher Walken) will terrorize Pan and the Darling children — reimagined in hyper-saturated colors made for high-definition TVs, as well as evidence of Lost Boys, Islanders, mermaids, and pirates. It's safe to say that, if J.M. Barrie — the Scotsman who, in the early 1900s, created the tale of the boy who doesn't want to grow up — were to land here today, he'd have his argyle socks blown off.

I had the Sound of Music on last year out of curiosity but didn't watch all of it.   LOL.    I might watch this one just to see for myself - you know there will be buzz tomorrow.   HAHAHA

 I will be watching Project Runway and Bones and Gracepoint.  It will be nice, I will have fewer things clogging up the DVR.

I'm ready to see PR again.    I keep feeling like I'm behind, but it wasn't on last week so I'm good!

I have it scheduled on the DVR. Not sure the family will be interested.

We watched part of Sound of Music last year but didn't finish. I hope Peter Pan will be better.

I watched it (sort of) for about an hour and then I just couldn't do it anymore.   I'll be honest, the worst part for me was Christopher Walken.    I didn't like that casting and he seemed out of his element quite a few times.
