Finding Neverland will be playing through November 19th at the lovely Aronoff Center, which means that you have the chance to spend a magical evening. This is definitely not the typical Broadway performance, engaging the audience to believe in everything from fairies to the happily-ever-after story that lives inside all of us.

Finding Neverland is packed with thrills and the ultimate excitement, mixed deliciously with that feel-good feeling that can only come from a truly warm-hearted experience. Explore the story of J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, and follow him on a journey that delves into every human emotion, including heartbreak, the thrill of innovation, and the joy that can only come from a handful of pixie dust.

Finding Neverland is directed by the multi-talented Diane Paulus, with choreography by Mia Michaels. The music and lyrics are by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy, with the book written by James Graham.

The stars of this inspirational performance include: Billy Harrigan Tighe, Lael Van Keuren, Karen Murphy, Matt Wolpe, Dwelvan David and John Davidson. Tighe and Van Keuren have an onstage chemistry that can be felt all the way to the back row of the theater, and Tighe's strong tenor voice resonates in a breathtaking manner that is nearly tangible. Before this performance is over, you, too, will believe in magic.

It would be absolutely remiss not to mention the decadent theater for this production. The Aronoff Center is the perfect place to witness all that Broadway has in store for Cincinnati!
