Matthew Morrison and Kiesza Celebrate Finding Neverland Concept Album Release
Both artists are featured on the new record, which reimagines the score as sung by pop stars.
Tony nominee Matthew Morrison and pop singer Kiesza celebrated the release of Finding Neverland's concept album with a concert and signing at Macy's department store on West 34th Street. Republic Records released the CD, which features Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy's score performed by the likes of Nick Jonas, Ellie Goulding, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, and Jon Bon Jovi, alongside Morrison and Kiesza themselves.
Directed by Diane Paulus, Finding Neverland opened April 15 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre after a 2014 tryout run at American Repertory Theater. Morrison leads the cast as J.M. Barrie, with Kelsey Grammer as Charles Frohman, Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, and Carolee Carmello as Madame Du Maurier.
Finding Neverland explores the friendship of playwright J.M. Barrie's and Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, a widowed mother whose four boys inspired the beloved Peter Pan stories. It is based on the 2004 film of the same title, which itself was based on Allan Knee's play The Man Who Was Peter Pan. A complete cast album will be released June 21.
