The Shows Must Go On returns this evening, with a full musical production of Peter Pan streaming for free – details here.
It’s been over three months now since Andrew Lloyd Webber launched The Shows Must Go On!, a YouTube channel that each week has brought us a full-length musical production to watch for free. The first two months were dedicated to Lloyd Webber’s own shows, and in recent weeks we’ve had a mix of shows, from Hairspray to The Wiz
Tonight? We’re getting Peter Pan Live, a full-length musical production that comes with the added bonus of Christopher Walken in the villainous role of Captain Hook. This is the show rescheduled from two weeks ago, when Universal paused the channel in favour of a message firmly in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The show will appear from 7pm at The Shows Will Go On YouTube channel. The embed is below, and click through if you want to see it directly on YouTube.
As always, you have 48 hours to watch the show before it disappears. It’s entirely free of charge whilst it’s live, and we’ll be finding out what’s coming up next Friday early next week.
Here’s the synopsis…
Preparing to sprinkle fairy dust across America, NBC presents a bold new LIVE television production of the classic Broadway musical that will gather friends, families and anyone who refuses to ever grow up. Following in the footsteps of the phenomenally successful The Sound of Music LIVE! – which drew over 18 million viewers – comes this musical masterpiece that tells the beloved story of Peter Pan, the mischievous little boy who ran away to Neverland. Get ready for show-stopping stars, stunning costumes, extravagant sets, and delightful music that will have everyone in your home singing along. From executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron comes a soaring holiday event guaranteed to take viewers on a magical and musical journey to the second star to the right.
