Sally Ann Triplett Flies Into FINDING NEVERLAND Tonight
As previously announced, Tony Award-nominee Tony Yazbeck will play his final performance as 'J.M. Barrie', the writer whose relationship with a widow and her four sons inspired him to write Peter Pan, on Sunday, March 27. LES MISERABLES star Alfie Boe will succeed him.
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.
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.
