The new Broadway musical Finding Neverland will play its first today, Sunday, March 15 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues).
And for those whose bank accounts won’t grow up, producers also announced a rush ticket policy beginning March 17. A limited number of rush tickets will be available for purchase in-person at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre box office beginning at 10am (12pm on Sundays) for that day’s performance(s) only. Rush tickets cost $37 with a maximum of one ticket per person, and may be purchased with cash only. Rush tickets are subject to availability and may not be offered at all performances. Rush seating locations will be determined at the discretion of the box office.
Starring Tony Award nominee Matthew Morrison (“Glee,” South Pacific), Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier,” La Cage aux Folles), Olivier Award-winner Laura Michelle Kelly (Mary Poppins), and based on the Academy Award-winning motion picture by the same name, 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.
