TWITTER WATCH: FINDING NEVERLAND's Carolee Carmello Sends A Second Warning: She's Back!
"One week from tonight, this grandma is back!" Carolee Carmello announced on Twitter last Tuesday as she prepared to return to Finding Neverland as Mrs. du Maurier, the role she originated on Broadway last season.
Having concluded her Broadway run in TUCK EVERLASTING, where she played a woman cursed with the prospect of never aging and living forever, the Broadway favorite sent out what looked like a stern warning to beware her return.

Well, tonight's the night, and although Carolee Carmello's mesmerizing vocals have been thrilling Broadway audiences in shows like 1776, PARADE, LESTAT, KISS ME, KATE, URINETOWN and THE ADDAMS FAMILY, tonight she took on a new voice to ensure that all are aware of her arrival.

Finding Neverland plays at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues). To purchase tickets and for more information, please visitwww.FindingNeverlandTheMusical.com.
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.
