You may think that tonight’s telecast of Peter Pan LIVE! on NBC couldn’t get much gayer — but with a slew of gay Broadway alums making sure that the dancing goes off without a hitch, and with this handy guide, you’ll find gay in Peter Pan you didn’t even know was there. (And here's a nifty guide to live tweeting tonight.)
Ryan Steele will join the ranks of Peter Pan’s rowdy bunch as the lost boy, Curly. Steele has risen through the ranks since he began dancing on-stage. Best-known for the time he spent on Newsies and Matilda, and last year’s film, Five Dances (and that time Out went to bed with him). He and boyfriend Matt Doyle (Private Romeo, Gossip Girl) had worked under the same director and met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and since then, it’s been happily ever after.
James Brown III (opting for infintitely more coverage since the last time Out saw him), Marty Lawson, and Charlie Williams have revolving parts tonight in the ensemble as a pirates, islanders, and mermen. The three of them, along with Timothy Oliver Reid and Ryan Steel, have been going Twitter and Instagram crazy on the set since rehearsals started.
