Review Roundup: FINDING NEVERLAND in Leicester!
Lizz Brain, This is Leicestershire: Finding Neverland's most successful moments are the simplest thanks to beautifully-considered performances from the principals: Julian Ovenden and Rosalie Craig are strong, intelligent actors who make the growing relationship between Barrie and widow Sylvia utterly convincing and heartwarming. Also huge hats-off though to the four boys in the company (young Harry Polden was a standout on opening night)...It's pleasant, enjoyable theatre and the end is predictably emotional for any parent, but ultimately it's a show with an identity issue. Finding Neverland has a lot of great qualities, it just needs to really find itself.
