Musical
"Finding Neverland"
Directed by visionary Tony-winner Diane Paulus and based on the acclaimed Academy Award-winning film, "Finding Neverland" tells the story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J. M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatregoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes a monumental leap. He leaves his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.
