While Marnie Michaels isn’t having a great time making her singing dreams come true, at least the actress who plays her, Allison Williams, is faring much better.
NBC announced today that the Girls‘ actress will be taking on the role of Peter Pan in their live production of Peter Pan Live!, which will broadcast on December 4. Williams will be going up against Christopher Walken, who will take on the role of the villainous Hook.

Peter Pan Live! will be the network’s follow-up to last year’s The Sound of Music, which starred Stephen Moyer and Carrie Underwood. The production was met with mixed reviews. However, it DID manage to garner 18.6 million viewers.
That being said though, we have a lot of confidence in Williams. After all, she HAS been practicing for the part of Peter Pan since childhood.
“Thrilled to be playing Peter Pan live on NBC in December,” she captioned in a photo posted on Instagram. “I’ve been rehearsing for a REALLY long time.”
We’re sure Allison! Just as long as it’s better than this disaster of a music video you did for Girls!!
