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.

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.
