Finding Neverland - the background to enchantment
If you've ever been enchanted by the story of Peter Pan then you'll definitely want to get Finding Neverland tickets from StubHub. Finding Neverland will take your breath away as you follow the story of J.M. Barrie and enter the magical world he created.
Gary Barlow has stepped away from the world of pop and entered the land of musical theatre, teaming up Eliot Kennedy to write the music and lyrics for Finding Neverland. The stage book was written by James Graham, the show produced by Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein and the outstanding choreography led by Mia Michaels. Finding Neverland opened at the Curve Theatre in Leicester in 2012 before being reworked and eventually having its Broadway premiere at the Lunt-Fontaine Theatre in April 2015. After nearly 600 performances Finding Neverland went on tour across the United States. It is expected to open in London's West End sometime in 2018 with Alfie Boe stepping into the lead role. The first actor to play J.M. Barrie on Broadway was Glee star Matthew Morrison supported by Laura Michelle Kelly and Kelsey Grammer.
The plot of Finding Neverland is based on the award-winning 2004 film of the same name. The musical follows the story of playwright J.M. Barrie as he struggles with becoming a writer and remaining true to himself. When he meets the beautiful widow, Sylvia Llewelyn Davies along with George, Michael, Jack and Peter her four sons he finally finds the inspiration he needs. The boys' mischievous escapades delight Barrie and give him the idea for the magical world of Neverland. The play he writes is different from anything the high-society world of London theatre has seen before but Barrie dares everything and the story flies.
