Finding Neverland, the new musical based on the Academy Award-nominated film of the same title that centers on "Peter Pan" author J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired the tale, is preparing to take flight at the Curve Theatre in Leicester, U.K. later this month.
Finding Neverland has a book by Allan Knee, based on his play of the same title, with a score by Tony Award-nominated Grey Gardens and Far From Heaven writers Scott Frankel and Michael Korie. Tony Award winner Rob Ashford (Evita, Thoroughly Modern Millie) directs and choreographs.
Julian Ovenden (Death Takes a Holiday) stars as J.M. Barrie opposite Rosalie Craig (Ragtime) as Sylvia Liewellyn Davies.
Here's a look at the cast and creative team speaking about the production.
