Tony nominee and Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer will return to Broadway's Finding Neverland for a limited seven-week run, January 19-February 28. Grammer reprises his role as Charles Frohman and Captain Hook, which he originated when the show opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in April 2015.

Directed by Diane Paulus, Finding Neverland opened April 15 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre after a 2014 tryout run at American Repertory Theater. Matthew Morrison leads the cast as J.M. Barrie, with Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, and Carolee Carmello as Madame Du Maurier.

Also featured in the Broadway production are Teal Wicks, Casey Butler, Christian Michael Camporin, Alex Dreier, Jackson Demott Hill, Christopher Paul Richards, Eli Tokash, Courtney Balan, Kristy Cates, Dana Costello, Colin Cunliffe, Rory Donovan, Chris Dwan, Francesca Granell, Kevin Kern, Josh Lamon, Nick McGough, Mary Page Nance, Emma Pfaeffle, Jonathan Ritter, Tyley Ross, Julius Anthony Rubio, Paul Slade Smith, Jaime Verazin, Ryan Worsing, and Amy Yakima.

With a score by Gary Barlow and 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).
