VIDEO: Allison Williams Thinks Happy Thoughts, Takes First PETER PAN Flight
People writes that Allison Williams, set to lead NBC's PETER PAN LIVE this winter, is one step -- or swoop, maybe? -- closer to Neverland, as the actress just began flight training for the production. Watch her soar in the video below!
Allison Williams paid tribute to HOOK's grown-up Peter Pan in a statement to the outlet: "First day of flying lessons for Peter Pan. Thinking about and missing a hero of mine who once did this and left big shoes to fill."
She is, of course, talking about the late Robin Williams, who starred in the 1991 film inspired by the fairytale.
NBC's PETER PAN LIVE, the network special from executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, will air on December 4. Preparing to sprinkle fairy dust across America, NBC presents a bold new LIVE television production of the classic Broadway musical that will gather friends, families and anyone who refuses to ever grow up.
Following in the footsteps of the phenomenally successful The Sound of Music Live! -- which drew over 18 million viewers -- comes this musical masterpiece that tells the beloved story of Peter Pan, the mischievous little boy who ran away to Neverland. Get ready for show-stopping stars, stunning costumes, extravagant sets and delightful music that will have everyone in your home singing along.
