Minnie Driver’s now a part of NBC’s upcoming live musical production of Peter Pan Live! airing on December 4, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT. Driver will be narrating the musical and will also play the adult Wendy Darling. She joins a cast that includes Allison Williams as Peter Pan, Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, Christian Borle as Smee and George Darling, and Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling.
Driver’s definitely not a stranger to musicals having starred in the big screenplay adaptation of the hit Broadway play, Phantom of the Opera. She’s also a recording artist and her latest album Ask Me to Dance featuring songs by Neil Young and Stevie Wonder.
“We’re thrilled to have Minnie as part of this Peter Pan adventure,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “She appears in the final emotional scene when Peter returns to the Darling home years later only to realize Wendy is now grown up and has a daughter of her own, but you’ll also hear her voice throughout the movie since Adult Wendy is also our narrator. She’s a classy addition to our wonderful cast.”
NBC also announced The Making of Peter Pan Live! special will air on November 26, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT. According to the network, the special will feature rehearsal footage, stunt training, and a look at the costume design process.
