Here’s a bit of pixie dust to sweeten your morning coffee: actress Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in an NBC live musical production set to premiere on December 4. Sure, Neverland is a far cry from the Girls set in New York, but Allison has eagerly awaited this opportunity since childhood. She even donned a Peter Pan costume as a kid, and posted the proof on Instagram.

Of her upcoming role, she joked: “What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?” On the other end of Allison’s sword, viewers will see the always charming (and sometimes wicked) Christopher Walken in the role of Captain Hook. While it will be tough to rival Walt Disney’s version of the imaginative story, I’ll definitely be tuning in to this star-studded update.

As if we didn’t already love Clueless enough, director Amy Heckerling recently divulged to Vulture that she is bringing her cult-favorite 90s film to Broadway. Working as hard as Cher did to make over Tai, Amy is debating who should tackle the leading role of the movie’s beloved Beverly Hills princess.

Kay Perry

Amy told Vulture, “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death.” While I’d love to see the doe-eyed singer on stage, the director also threw another rising star’s name in the ring, adding: “Maybe Iggy [Azalea] wants to do it!” After all, Iggy did pull inspiration from Cher and the gang in the music video for her chart-topping hit, “Fancy.” While the cast gets sorted out, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dance routines that accompany my favorite scenes.
