Watched the whole thing - mostly because it was live - which is rare as hen's teeth on TV. Allison Williams was actually OK. She could actually sing (no one expected that). I don't see anyone rushing out to by the DVD recording, though. She was no Mary Martin. One irritating aspect of the production - is that they were all supposed to be English, even declaring allegiance to the king, but almost no one spoke with a British accent. Christopher Walken was pretty weak as Captain Hook. And, poor guy, had to wear an odd costume. As the review in the NY Times put it, in his "flowing black wig and pirate costume, he looked like the fashion designer John Galliano dressed as Johnny Depp for Halloween." I trust the 5 year olds liked it, but wonder how many of them got to stay up to 11 pm to watch it.
