Titanic: the first musical I fell in love with, finally coming (back) to Chicago in the fall.
It was like night and day with Peter Pan and Sound of Music. Peter Pan flowed much better, had better cast chemistry, and just had an overall less awkward presentation to it. And of course, Walken killed it in every scene he was in.So did anyone watch Peter Pan Live! tonight? I was actually really pleasantly surprised. Last year's Sound of Music was so blah, that I wasn't holding out much hope. This was a pretty endearing show, though. I love Kelli O' Hara and was thrilled they found ways to use her as much as they did for such a minor part. Allison Williams wasn't Mary Martin, but she was still a very passable Peter (I was sad they cut "Oh My Mysterious Lady", though). And of course, I loved Christopher Walken as Hook.
And yes. I did clap for Tinkerbell.
