Drama Desk Award winner and three-time Tony nominee Marc Kudisch (Hand to God) will step into the dual roles of Charles Frohman and Captain Hook in Broadway's Finding Neverland at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre beginning tonight, April 12. Kelsey Grammer originated the roles on Broadway.
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. Directed by Diane Paulus, Finding Neverland opened on Broadway on April 15, 2015 after a 2014 tryout run at the American Repertory Theater.
Alfie Boe, recent star of Broadway's Les Miserables, joined the cast of Finding Neverland as J.M. Barrie on March 29.
