Last night was NBC's big #PeterPanLive event, as you may have noticed. I did not expect to blog about it.
But then this happened. Wendy and the boys have gone with Peter to Neverland, where she is to play the role of mother and tell them the ends of all the stories. And then...
Lost Boy #1: Tell us the ending of Cinderella!I honestly have no idea if that's a new scene or if that is in J.M. Barrie's original in any form.
Wendy: Well, the glass slipper fit, and Cinderella and the Prince lived happily ever after.
Lost Boy #2: Tell us the ending of Sleeping Beauty!
Wendy: The prince kisses her, and she wakes up and they all live happily ever after.
Lost Boy #3: Tell us the ending to Hamlet!
Wendy: <blank stare> Umm....well.....Hamlet dies, and the king dies, and the queen dies and Ophelia dies, and Laertes dies....
Wendy: ....but everybody who's left lives happily ever after.
