    I still say that this is going to look ridiculous on television. What works on stage does not really work on camera. The kids in The Sound of Music were great. There is no good reason not to use kids in this.

    They are going too old with the cast.. should be using teenagers… and Peter should be played by a boy… having a girl in the role really doesnt work on TV…. and it kinda messes with the puppy love thing that goes on between him and Wendy.

    Yea Taylor ! She is fabulous great choice!
    Way to go

    Mark my words: this is going to BOMB. It has none of the appeal or popularity of The Sound of Music.

    Also, what’s up with Christian Borle playing Mr. Darling but not playing Captain Hook? The two are supposed to be played by the same actor – implying how the kids view their father.

    So very proud of Taylor!

    Oh no- a grown woman as Wendy Darling is the second most cringe-worthy part of the Mary Martin Peter Pan. After Peter. A grown woman pretending to be so happy about “hopscotch!” Ugh.

  7. Jaks says:

    This is going to flop badly. They don’t have one HUGE star attached [ala Carrie Underwood]. Sure, Christopher Walken is awesome, but he’s far from being a huge draw when it comes to ratings. What a mess.

  8. Maryann says:

    Wendy is supposed to be 12-15 years old or so. Couple that with a female Pan, and I will be passing.

  9. Melissa says:

    I am very excited to see Taylor Louderman in the role of Wendy. She has a very honest and endearing presence on stage. She is a young actress with a bright future!

    Congratulations Taylor! Paneitz family is so very proud of you!

  11. Allison says:

    I thought Wendy was a child, not a twenty-something.

  12. Jenny says:

    Congratulations to Taylor!! I’m so happy for her!!

    She does look youngish, but after watching she is too old.
