Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. This weekend the play makes its way to Jones Hall.
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 theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible, and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.
Finding Neverland is the story of Scottish playwright J.M.Barrie who may be a household name today, but back in the late 1800s, when Finding Neverland was created, he wasn't the greatest of successes. His latest work had proved to be yet another in a long line of theatrical flops, and Barrie was in desperate need of a change in fortunes. Enter the Llewelyn family, comprised of Sylivia and her four boys. After a chance encounter in Kensington Park, Barrie becomes a close family friend to the Llewelyns, and inspired by the children's boundless imagination and sense of adventure, begins work on the play which would write his name into the history books.
After thrilling audiences on Broadway, the magical Finding Neverland headed out across the country on a national tour. Based on the Oscar-winning movie starring Johnny Depp, Finding Neverland tells the story of author J.M.Barrie and the family who inspired his greatest work - Peter Pan! Interweaving Barrie's real life story with flights of fancy that take you deep into the world of Captain Hook and The Lost Boys, this musical is an inspiring ode to the creative spirit and speaks to the child in all of us!
The play was Broadway’s biggest new hit and the winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical. This breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” said TIME Magazine. Vogue cheered, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!” Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film starring Depp, FINDING The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR).
