'Finding Neverland' follows playwright J.M. Barrie, who needs a big hit to save his floundering career. He finds the inspiration he's been missing when he meets a beautiful widow and her four young sons. Delighted by the boys' escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any that high-society London theatergoers have ever seen. It's a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered: when you believe, you can fly. Directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus. Best for ages 7 and up.
