About the show

Direct from Broadway, this touring musical is based on the film of the same name about the man behind Peter Pan, as he summons the courage to become the writer–and the man–he yearns to be. More…

'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.
