“Finding Neverland”

Based on the film of the same name, “Finding Neverland” follows the incredible story of playwright J.M. Barrie, the beloved author and creator of Peter Pan. Struggling in turn-of-the-century London, Barrie finds inspiration in a family of four boys and their widowed mother. Captivated by the boys’ imaginations and adventures, Barrie brought the world to Neverland, and this heartwarming story, recreated by James Graham, Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy, is one audiences of all ages won’t soon forget.
