Jeremy Jordan & Laura Michelle Kelly Talk FINDING NEVERLAND
The out of town tryout production of new PETER PAN-inspired musical FINDING NEVERLAND is currently underway at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts and a new video interview with the show's stars, Jeremy Jordan and Laura Michelle Kelly, is now available to view.
"I'm just running and jumping and breathing and totally exhausted. It's more vocally taxing than anything I've ever done - I'm just speaking and yelling and belting and singing and everything else that you can imagine," Jordan relates of his taxing new role in the new clip.
"These kids are amazing! I am always astounded by what they can do," Kelly says of her four adolescent co-stars in the show.
The official description of FINDING NEVERLAND is as follows: "When a playwright meets a widow and her four boys in Kensington Gardens, he embarks on a friendship that inspires one of the most beloved stories of all time. Based on the Miramax motion picture by David Magee and the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee, Finding Neverland follows the relationship between J. M. Barrie and the Llewelyn Davies family that inspired Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Staged by A.R.T. Artistic Director and Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus, with music by U.K. pop sensation Gary Barlow (Take That) and choreography by Emmy Award-winner Mia Michaels ("So You Think You Can Dance") this new musical explores the power of imagination to open up new worlds, and the pressures put upon those worlds by the inevitability of growing up. Finding Neverland is presented by the A.R.T. by special arrangement with Harvey Weinstein. The cast will be led by Jeremy Jordan as J.M. Barrie and Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies; with Carolee Carmello as Madame du Maurier, Jeanna de Waal as Mary Barrie, Michael McGrath as Charles Frohman/Captain Cook, and the boys Aidan Gemme as Peter, Alex Dreier as Michael, Sawyer Nunes as George, and Hayden Signoretti as Jack. Members of the ensemble are Courtney Balan, Dana Costello, Rory Donovan, Gaelen Gilliland, Thayne Jasperson, Josh Lamon, Melanie Moore, Mary Page Nance, Stuart Neal, Emma Pfaeffle, Jonathan Ritter, Tyley Ross, JC Schuster, Paul Slade Smith, and Ron Todorowski, as well as Dance Captains/Swings Julius Anthony Rubio and Jaime Lynn Verazin (Assistant Choreographer)."
