Sandy Duncan to Join FINDING NEVERLAND on Broadway?
Rumor has it an iconic 'Pan' may be returning to her roots.
Sandy Duncan was reportedly spotted backstage at Finding Neverland chatting up composer Gary Barlow about the possibility of appearing in the musical. Having famously portrayed the title character in a 1979 revival of PETER PAN, the Tony nominee would step into the role of Madame du Maurier.

Tony Award nominee Tony Yazbeck (On The Town) just took over the role of Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland, 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).
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 winner Mia 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.
