Finding Neverland is based on the film by the same name, and chronicles "the real-life relationship between playwright J. M. Barrie and the family that inspired 'Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up,' one of the most beloved stories of all time."
The production is directed by Paulus and is presented by special arrangement with lead producer Harvey Weinstein. Choreography is by Mia Michaels ("So You Think You Can Dance") and music is by U.K. pop star Gary Barlow.
The run at A.R.T. is slated for July 23 - Sept. 28 and is looking to a Broadway run. In fact, one of the songs from the production, "Neverland," was performed by Jennifer Hudson at the 68th Annual Tony Awards broadcast as a look towards Broadway's coming attractions.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
