For kids and kids at heart, the story of Neverland has never been more beautiful.
Based on the 2004 film starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, Finding Neverland tells the real life story of how J.M. Barrie (Matthew Morrison) created the world of Peter Pan. Somewhat stuck in a funk, Barrie finds new spirit when he meets Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Laura Michelle Kelly) and her four boys.
This show is as much fun as you’d imagine it could be. There’s flying, dinner parties and real dogs onstage. The choreography by the incredible Mia Michaels is some of the best I’ve seen on stage and the music is partly by British superstar Gary Barlow.
Expect to be cheering after some songs and wiping the tears out of your eyes after others.
Final say: Truly the most beautifully done show. ★★★★★
