Anthony Warlow is one of the leading stage actors in Australia, with an extensive body of work that includes originating roles in Australian productions of Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, The Secret Garden, Doctor Zhivago and Jekyll & Hyde, as well as revivals of My Fair Lady, Guys & Dolls and Man of La Mancha. In 1988, he garnered international recognition as the preeminent performer of Enjolras in Les Miserables, and performed the role on the Complete Symphonic Recording. Warlow first portrayed the lead in The Phantom of the Opera in the original Australian production, and returned to the role for Melbourne's 2007 revival and a two-year tour of Australia and New Zealand. He also appeared as a guest at the 25th Anniversary production of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall in London. His extensive opera credits include The Magic Flute, La Boheme, Tosca, Otello, Tales of Hoffman, La Fanciulla del West and Don Giovanni, as well as significant Gilbert and Sullivan roles with Opera Australia including The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance and H.M.S. Pinafore. He has recorded numerous solo albums, and in 2012 he made his Broadway debut as Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks in James Lapine's revival of Annie.

Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair), with music and lyrics by Gary Barlow(Take That) and Grammy winner Eliot Kennedy, book by Olivier Award nominee James Graham, 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.

Based on the Academy Award winning motion picture by the same name, Finding Neverland 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.
