New Musical Finding Neverland Heading for the West End

A musical version of the film Finding Neverland, which starred Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet is heading for London’s West End.

Two workshops with a full cast will be held in London on December 12th with experienced performers Julian Ovenden playing J M Barrie and Jenna Russell as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (whose sons inspired Barrie to write Peter Pan).

Rob Ashford will direct and choreograph the show. The composer is Scott Frankel who wrote Grey Gardens. Lyrics are by Michael Korie and the book is by Allan Knee whose novel was adapted into the film.

The current plan is to open Neverland at a regional theatre and then bring it to the West End next autumn or early in 2013.
