It looks like the speculation was true! The New York Times reports that new musical Finding Neverland will hit the Great White Way in March 2015 at a Nederlander theater to be announced. The news comes on the same day that the show celebrates its official opening night at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus, the ART production stars Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan and Olivier winner Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davis. The two are joined by a cast that includes Carolee Carmello, Michael McGrath and Jeanna de Waal. The tuner features music and lyrics by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham.
Based on the film written by David Magee, Finding Neverland follows the story of Barrie (Jordan) and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kelly). Llewelyn Davies' children eventually became Barrie's inspiration to write Peter Pan. The musical overhauled its creative team in 2013, bringing on board Paulus, Barlow and Graham.
