Here’s what her co-stars had to say:
Allison is about to undertake one of the greatest drag roles in history and we are so proud we could burst. She will slay.

Others apparently aren’t so happy:
But Allison is very excited!
“I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true. It’s such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I’m very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team. And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?”
Congrats, Allison. GIRLS fans everywhere are very happy for you.
How do you feel about Allison being cast as Peter? Is she perfect?
The live telecast is airing on NBC December 4th!
