While I sort of love the show Girls, it’s interesting to see which character I am alternately sympathetic to and then repelled by on a weekly basis. Perhaps it’s a testament to that show’s humanity that it can portray its central characters behaving so atrociously towards each other but still keep us invested because we identify with it on some level. And Allison Williams’ Marnie can make us cringe with the best of them.
That sense of duality will likely not be in play on NBC’s upcoming staging of Peter Pan, though this take does continue a long held (if intermittent) stage tradition of having a female play the lead. The special airs on December 4th and also stars Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Christian Borle will play the role of Smee as well as the role of Mr. Darling. Hit the jump for a better look at Allison Williams as Peter Pan.
