I didn't watch the full thing... meant to give it a shot, but kept finding more interesting things (including some commercials) on other channels. Pretty much after "Tender Shepherd," I kept tuning out. And I stayed for that number mainly because I'm a Kelli O'Hara fan. lol
I thought Christopher Walken as Hook might make it worthwhile, figuring that even if he couldn't really sing that well, he'd at least be entertaining to watch. I was sadly, sadly mistaken. Was he directed that way, or overdirected to the point of just having zero f***s left to give? Or was something else going on there? And after seeing Kevin Spacey do an impression of Walken on Jimmy Fallon's talk show, I kinda found myself wishing that the folks behind Peter Pan
had hired Spacey and told him to do a Walken impression as Hook. Would've probably been more fun to watch.
But yeah... I'm sticking with the Mary Martin/Cyril Ritchard and Cathy Rigby/Paul Schoeffler filmed versions. And also this compilation album
that features songs from multiple versions of Peter Pan,
including Jonathan Freeman singing Hook's songs from the musical.
