A feel-good musical for families and grown-ups – who haven’t fully grown up!
A new musical comedy adapted from the much-loved Oscar winning film,Finding Neverland
Multiple Oscar and Tony Award winning Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, (Shakespeare in Love, The Kings Speech, Pulp Fiction and Chicago) chose to premiere the show in Leicester before it goes to the West End next year.
Harvey said “the Curve is one of the leading regional theatres in the whole of the UK. The state of the art theatre enables us to put on this huge show, with the massive technical requirements for our big budget set and production.”
Finding Neverland is a show for the whole family. It tells the incredible story of the writer J.M. Barrie and the adventures he had with the family he met that inspired him to write Peter Pan. Directed by Tony and Olivier award winner Rob Ashford, whose previous shows include Streetcar Named Desire with Rachel Weisz, Anna Christie with Jude Law and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying with Daniel Radcliffe.
British stage and screen actor Julian Ovenden will play Barrie. Having conquered the West End and Broadway, this charismatic actor and singer has just released his debut album and is well known for playing many leading roles in high profile television shows on both sides of the Atlantic. Two spine-tingling, show-stopping performances at the 2010 Proms, singing Sondheim and Rodgers and Hammerstein.
West End actress Rosalie Craig will play Sylvia, the mother of the Llewelyn Davies boys, who inspired Barrie to write his classic stories. Craig is currently wowing audiences and critics as the Mother in Ragtime at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in London. Her other recent theatre credits include Company at Sheffield Crucible and Aspects of Love at the Menier for which she was nominated for the Whatsonstage.com Best Actress in a Musical Award.
