TV Exclusive: BroadwayWorld Launches New Kid Critics Series at FINDING NEVERLAND!
It's not hard to stumble across an excess of reviews for any given Broadway show these days, but there is a group of theatregoers that is wildly underrepresented when it comes to opinions on Broadway- kids! BroadwayWorld is excited to launch our newest series, KID CRITICS, which gives parents and children alike a kid's perspective on Broadway's hottest shows.
We are launching the series with Tai (8), Isabella (10), and Charles (7), who just stopped by the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre to check out Finding Neverland. Curious of what they thought about the show? Find out below!
Based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, this breathtaking show 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 winner Diane Paulus (PIPPIN, HAIR) directs this innovative new musical featuring an original score by noted composer Gary Barlowand Grammy® winner Eliot Kennedy, with a book by CELEBRATED playwright James Grahamand choreography by three-time Emmy winner Mia Michaels (SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE?). Packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, Finding Neverland is a timeless story about the power of imagination... and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.
