Who Will Love It: Musical lovers, anyone needing a little pixie dust, your Inner Child
Based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, the national Broadway tour of FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play to astound London theatergoers.

Vogue cheers, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!”

Who Will Love It: Fans of new-fangled musicals, your abs, Bard-mirers (mild content advisory for vulgarity & innuendo…Shakespeare would be proud)
Something Rotten! is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play in the shadow of the Renaissance’s biggest playwright, William Shakespeare. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is “Broadway’s funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years!” (Time Out New York).
