The Original Soundtrack of the NBC Television Event will be released by Broadway Records and is now available for pre-order on the Broadway Records website and select retailers.

The cast also includes five-time Tony Award nominee Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling, Taylor Louderman as Wendy Darling, one of the three Darling children, and Alanna Saunders as Tiger Lily, the Native American who rules her “islanders” on Neverland. Oscar, Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominee Minnie Driver will serve as narrator and adult Wendy Darling.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (“Hairspray”, “The Sound of Music Live!”) will executive produce the live broadcast. Tony Award winner Rob Ashford will serve as director and choreographer and ten-time Emmy Award winner and five-time DGA Award winner Glenn Weiss will serve as director for live television.
The Original Soundtrack of Peter Pan Live! will be produced by Grammy and Emmy nominated David Chase, three-time Tony Award winner Doug Besterman, Grammy Award winner Lawrence Manchester and Frank Wolf.
