STAGE TUBE: NBC Finds Its Peter Pan! Listen to Allison Williams in Action!
As BroadwayWorld reported earlier today, "Girls" star and classically trained singer Allison Williams has been cast as the iconic title character in NBC's Dec. 4 telecast of "Peter Pan Live!" "I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true," said Williams. "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," added Williams, "what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?"
With several months until the broadcast there is still plenty of time to prepare for Williams' upcoming appearance in the special and BroadwayWorld wants you to get a chance to know the star. Below, we bring you a collection of videos of Williams in action! How do you think she'll do in the role?
Williams, who has sung on HBO's "Girls" and in various other projects, is an accomplished actress and singer. Since graduating from Yale University in 2010, she has starred as Marnie Michaels on the twice Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning "Girls." Williams recorded several songs (as Marnie) for the "Girls" soundtrack, and videos of her singing online that she made prior to "Girls" have gained millions of views. Williams has also appeared on "The Mindy Project" and "The League."
