Barrie, with Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, Anthony Warlow as Charles Frohman and Captain Hook, and Carolee Carmello as Madame Du Maurier.

With a score by Barlow (of the pop band Take That) and Grammy winner Eliot Kennedy, and a book by James Graham, Finding Neverland explores the friendship of playwright J.M. Barrie 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. Finding Neverland was nominated for 2015 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Musical (Morrison) and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical (Carmello).
