We simply adore Broadway here at Vintage Indie. Especially stories that tell the history behind famous musicians and ones like Finding Neverland that tell the story of J.M. Barrie, the man and writer, behind Peter Pan.
"Based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee, Finding Neverland follows the 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. Directed by Tony®-winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair) with book by Olivier Award®-nominee James Graham, music and lyrics by Gary Barlow (Take That) and Grammy Award®- winner Eliot Kennedy, and choreography by Emmy Award®-winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium), this new musical, packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, is a timeless story about the power of imagination… and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up."
Prepare your heart as you follow J.M. Barrie, and his relationship with widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael and Peter as he embraces who he is and the man he wants to be.
Much like last night's audience you may find yourself falling for J.M. Barrie's dog Porthos who was originally a St. Bernard. Porthos was quite the attraction on stage, and is the reason J.M. Barrie came to know the Llewelyn Davies' boys.
