VIDEO: Tony Winner Jane Krakowski Shares PETER PAN LIVE! Audition Tape in New Funny or Die Video
In an all new FUNNY OR DIE video, Jane Krakowski shares her audition tape for NBC's live broadcast of Peter Pan. Unfortunately for the Tony winner, the part went to 'Girls' star Allison Williams instead. Can't imagine why!
Krakowski is perhaps best known for her role as Jenna Maroney on NBC's hit comedy 30 Rock, for which she has earned three Emmy nominations. She was awarded the 2003 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Carla in the Broadway revival of the hit musical, Nine, for which she also won a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critic's Award.
Allison Williams will portray Peter Pan in the highly anticipated PETER PAN LIVE on NBC.The 'Girls' star takes on the role of the boy who refuses to grow up and who is forced to confront the villainous Captain Hook, played by Oscar winner Christopher Walken when the J.M. Barrie's classic musical comes to NBC on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will executive produce the broadcast. The duo are accomplished in both television and film, having earned 103 Emmy nominations. They were the driving force behind several stage-to-screen musicals, including the film version of "Hairspray" and TV adaptation of "Cinderella," as well as executive producing the NBCdrama "Smash," which earned a Golden Globe nomination. They were also nominated for a Tony Award in 2011 for "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and also produced the revival of "Promises, Promises" to the Broadway stage in 2010. In addition, the duo executive produced the 2002 Oscar-winning film "Chicago."
