Songwriter Gary Barlow, who created the score for the Broadway production, will perform alongside the musical's leading lady, actress Laura Michelle Kelly.

The segment, which airs live from Times Square, is slated to begin around 8:30 AM. "GMA" has also announced an ongoing series that will follow the musical through its Broadway opening night in April 2015.

Kelly (Mary Poppins) will star as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies opposite Tony Award nominee and "Glee" star Matthew Morrison (The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, Hairspray) as Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie in the Broadway production.

They will be joined by Emmy Award winner Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier," La Cage aux Folles) and Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello (Parade, Scandalous).

Performances begin March 15 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre towards an April 15 opening night. 

Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus (Pippin, Porgy and Bess, Hair) directs Finding Neverland, which features a score by U.K. pop songwriters Barlow and Elliot Kennedy and is also based on the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee. It has a book by Olivier Award nominee James Graham (This House).

The musical features choreography by Emmy Award winner Mia Michaels. The creative team also includes scenic designer Scott Pask, costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb, lighting designer Kenneth Posner and sound designer Jonathan Deans.
