COMING SOON TO THE BROADWAY IN BIRMINGHAM SERIES
BJCC Concert Hall
April 5 - 7, 2019
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.
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. 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.
Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair) directs this innovative musical featuring an original score by noted composer Gary Barlow and Grammy Award® winner Eliot Kennedy, with a book by celebrated playwright James Graham and choreography by three-time Emmy Award® winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium). 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. “Enchanting! The kind of magical experience that transforms adults back into children, and turns kids on to a lifetime of theatergoing.”-David Gordon, Theatermania.
