Photo Coverage: New 'J.M. Barrie' Tony Yazbeck Takes First Bows in FINDING NEVERLAND!

FINDING NEVERLAND has found its new leading man! Tony Award nominee Tony Yazbeck (On The Town) just took over the role of Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie in the smash hit, record-breaking Broadway musical last night, January 26, 2016. The production plays at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues). BroadwayWorld was there for his big night and you can check out photos below!

FINDING NEVERLAND has 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 winnerMia Michaels ("So You Think You Can Dance," Cirque du Soleil's Delirium).

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.

Tony Yazbeck (J.M. Barrie beginning tonight, January 26) recently concluded his run as Gabey in the critically acclaimed revival of On The Town on Broadway. He earned the 2015 Tony, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle Award Nominations as well as the Fred Astaire Award for his performance. He also recently collaborated with Hal Prince and Susan Stroman on Prince of Broadway, which made its premier in Japan in the fall of 2015. Other Broadway credits include Chicago (Billy Flynn), Irving Berlin's White Christmas (Phil Davis), Gypsy w/ Patti LuPone(Tulsa, Outer Critics Circle nom.), A Chorus Line (Al), Oklahoma!, Never Gonna Dance, and Gypsy w/ Tyne Daly. Off-Broadway: Fanny Hill at the York, and for City Center Encores!: Little Me, On The Town, Gypsy, The Apple Tree, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Pardon My English. Regional theaters include: Alliance, Barrington Stage, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Hartford Stage, Goodman, St. Louis Muny, Goodspeed (Connecticut Critics Circle Award), Signature (Helen Hayes Award), Trinity Rep., Paper Mill, Old Globe. Tony starred in Kiss Me Kate at the Royal Albert Hall in London. He was seen in NBC's "Smash," and the feature documentary "Every Little Step." Tony also stars in his own song and dance show, The Floor Above Me. His debut album will be released in February 2016.
