Based on the film of the same name, Finding Neverland follows the story of author J.M. Barrie and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, who eventually became Barrie's inspiration to write Peter Pan. The musical explores the power of imagination to open up new worlds, and the pressures put upon those worlds by the inevitability of growing up.
The musical is a crowd-pleaser of the kind that's too rare on Broadway these days.Review by Sandy Kenyon from WABC
