Tony nominee and Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer his extended his return engagement on Broadway's Finding Neverland through March 26. 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 through January 24, with Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, and Carolee Carmello as Madame Du Maurier. Tony Yazbeck takes over the role of J.M. Barrie beginning January 26.

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).
