FINDING NEVERLAND is Broadway’s biggest new hit and the winner of Broadway.com
's Audience Choice Award for BEST MUSICAL! This breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart” (Time Magazine). Vogue cheers, "it’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!” Directed by visionary Tony winner Diane Paulus, 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).

SUPPORT THE GOLISANO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
J.M. Barrie gave all the rights to Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital in 1929. Since then, the hospital has received royalties every time a production of the play is put on. Although Barrie and his wife were childless, he loved children and supported the hospital, where his legacy now lives on.
