Why See Finding Neverland?
The start of an awfully big adventure
Finding Neverland is the true story of playwright and author JM Barrie and how his friendship with the widowed Sylvia Llewellyn Davies and her children inspired one of the world's most treasured stories. Based on the Academy Award winning movie, expect to fall in love with the power of imagination and storytelling all over again.
The Road to the stage
After two adaptations were staged in 2011, Finding Neverland was then picked up again by Harvey Weinstein, who brought in Diane Paulus (Pippin), James Graham and UK pop star and Ivor Novello winning Gary Barlow to take on the score. After an acclaimed try out at Boston's ART with Jeremy Jordan and Laura Michelle Kelly, Neverland was picked up for a Broadway transfer, opening at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in March 2015.
Veteran theatre actor Paul Slade Smith stars as Charles Frohman, while Laura Michelle Kelly reprises her role as Sylvia Llewelyn Davis.
Unlock your imagination: the story of Finding Neverland
Before Peter Pan cast his spell on the Darling children, author JM Barrie was feeling depressed at the failure of his work, struggling to find the right audience. After being introduced to widow Sylvia Llewellyn Davies, he discovers a strong connection to the family and dedicates his life to enriching their lives through the magic of stories. Whilst creating worlds to help the boys deal with loss and grief and growing up, he becomes inspired to write the story of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys and their own Neverland...
