Now that JERSEY BOYS has announced closure in March 2016, we wonder if Peter Pan could be flying into the Piccadilly theatre? The Finding Neverland London website advertises “THE HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL WITH AN ORIGINAL SCORE BY GARY BARLOW IS COMING TO LONDON IN 2017!”
Could the production be transferring to Jersey Boys’ old home…?
FLYING NEVERLAND IS PLAYING TO SELL-OUT AUDIENCES ON BROADWAY!
Based on the Academy Award®-winning film of the same name, this breathtaking show follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer – and the man – he yearns to be. Barrie finds the inspiration he’s been missing when he meets the beautiful widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael and Peter.
Delighted by the boys’ hilarious escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any the high-society London theatergoers have ever seen. It’s a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered—
When you believe, you can fly.
Tony® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair) directs this innovative musical featuring an original score by noted composer Gary Barlow and Grammy® winner Eliot Kennedy, with a book by celebrated playwright James Graham and choreography by three-time Emmy® winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium). Packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, FINDING NEVERLAND is a timeless story about the power of imagination… and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.
