FINDING NEVERLAND

(Kravis On Broadway)

The winner of Broadway.com's Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash "captures the kid-at-heart," says TIME Magazine. Vogue cheers, "It's a must-see you'll remember for years to come!" Directed by visionary Tony-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four Young Brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is "far and away the best musical of the year!" (NPR).

Writers will receive a private evaluation of their work from Julie Gilbert, who will also lead the discussion.

Wendy Whelan: Former New York City Ballet Member
Her Rise from Anomaly to Stardom
A Dancer-to-Dancer Conversation with Steven Caras
(A Kravis Center Cultural Society Event)
Like caviar, New York City Ballet dancer Wendy Whelan was at first an acquired taste. But soon this wiry, angular, one-of-a-kind artist inspired company directors Jerome Robbins and Peter Martins to feature her uniqueness. Whelan's subsequent rise to Principal Ballerina status coincided with a rapidly growing fan base - an enormous audience who continue to cheer her on to this day. Now 50, following hip surgery and a glorious farewell at NYCB, Whelan dances on, collaborating with today's most innovative contemporary choreographers, promoting their important work in the process. Restless Creature, the new, aptly named documentary profiling Whelan's life, is currently being held-over in theaters across the country. Excerpts will be featured in a revealing, dancer-to-dancer conversation with fellow NYCB alumnus, Steven Caras.
