NBC has gone to Broadway to find one of its stars of "Peter Pan Live!"

The network said Tuesday that Kelli O'Hara will play Mrs. Darling, the wife of George Darling and mother of the Darling children — Wendy, John and Michael — in the live telecast of the musical airing Dec. 4.

O'Hara received Tony nominations for "South Pacific," ''The Pajama Game," ''The Light in the Piazza," ''Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "The Bridges of Madison County." Next spring, she will return to Broadway in the revival of the classic 1951 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "The King and I," starring Ken Watanabe.
