Judge Reinhold gave us a blast from the past by comparing hats. Yes, he compared Walken’s hat with the size of his own when he performed in Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 1982.

Mario Lopez suggested that they should cast a boy instead of a girl to play Peter Pan.
Trips me out that Peter Pan is being played by a girl. Isn’t he the “boy” who wouldn’t grow up?— Mario Lopez (@MarioLopezExtra) December 5, 2014
So would it be cool if “Annie” was played by a man?— Mario Lopez (@MarioLopezExtra) December 5, 2014
Neil Patrick Harris wished the cast luck from his side and so did Jimmy Fallon.
I know the cast of Peter Pan worked hard for the performance tonight. Go get ’em! Break a leg. #NeverGrowUp— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) December 4, 2014
I’ll be watching #PeterPanLive tonight at 8 pm on NBC. You? Can’t wait to see what will happen! Break a leg, cast. But not a wire…— Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) December 4, 2014
The pre-show comments for the show were enthusiastic and expectant. After the success of Sound of Music last year, NBC fans were expecting great performances this year as well. Christopher Walken playing Captain Hook definitely created excitement among the audience and that yielded some pretty freat tweets.
The show started and people witnessed the much awaited musical for the next two hours.
The first act went ok, Allison Williams performing Peter Pan was definitely a confusing scenario for some including Mario Lopez it seems but the rest of it seemed ok when the children learned to fly went to Wonderland.
Then Hook entered and the audience was hooked for a minute and a half.
Ever heard about an actor overshadowing his role?
Christopher Walken seemed to have done just that. The viewers’ were more or less generally disappointed with Walken’s performance which seemed to have brought the whole play down.
As it progressed the play went from bad to worse and people’s tweets turned on the show they were raving for to the show they ultimately deemed a disaster. See some responses below.

The important question to ask now is who will play the frog if NBC does BOM next year. @AndrewRannells @joshgad thoughts? #PeterPanLive— Jessica VanGiesen (@JessVanGiesen) December 5, 2014
No version of #PeterPanLive will ever be as good as this disaster https://t.co/mro2KzNFPk— Dom O’Hanlon (@dom_ohanlon) December 5, 2014
However, the musical lover like Anna Kendrick still praised the cast’s efforts and it /4/not be a big hit but it caught 3.02 billion viewers on NBC.
