A Drag Icon as Peter Pan! A Tony Winner as Captain Hook! Peter Pan Goes Live for NBC SCTV
SCTV presents 'Peter Pan Live'
He's flying!... Sort of.

While NBC (and P!nk?!) prep for the just-announced Peter Pan Live!, maybe they should check out this vintage parody of the 1954 tuner for some inspiration. In this sketch from legendary comedy show SCTV, the late great John Candy portrays the boy who won't grow up as played by iconic drag queen Divine (Hairspray). Candy makes for a superb doppelganger and his attempts to "fly" around the set are hilarious. Tony winner Martin Short joins Candy as TV director and Broadway vet David Steinberg playing Captain Hook. And the best part of this relic? They sing songs from the actual score like "I'm Flying" and "I Won't Grow Up." Seriously, if NBC wants to consider a drag queen for the role—we know just the gal!
