Finding Neverland Reviews
Debbie Knutson from San Francisco, California
This is my new favorite musical. I love life theater and watch as many as I can throughout the year (1-2/month)... Up until now, my favorite musical was THE KING AND I, following very closely by WICKED..... but this musical beat them both!! I am amazed, entertained and did not want it to end. This musical is family friends.... kids and adults alike should love it. I encourage EVERYONE to find the time to watch this magical musical.

CAPTURED MY INTEREST!!!
As a Peter Pan lover I was most excited to see Finding Neverland .... I loved the stage setting, how it was fluid and movable but not distracting...loved the j.m. Barrie actor his voice, his acting, everything...but most of all I loved the versatility of John Davidson!!! Long a favorite of mine, I could see the .John Davidson of my youth in his dimples, his movements, and his voice...double roles were handled easily by John ....go see this play it's awesome!!!

Wow! What an incredible nonstop feel good superior production! Loved it ALL! From the moment the lights dim and Tinker Bell flickers her tiny light dispelling the darkness to Pixie Dust showering you in the magic of make believe! This IS the story of how Peter Pan came to be, with the beauty of musical theater to bring it to life beyond written recollections and silver screen adaptation. The actors portray their characters so vividly with ease and artistically with captivating music that you find yourself observing reality to these tunes in your head days later! The choreography is incredibly sharp and so exacting it compels you to watch the art of dance. The visual dynamics are PERFECT for a musical built on the premise of one man's imagination. They are exciting and flawless in all their intended shapes and forms. Every nook (and hook) of this show is so well designed, crafted in such a way to create a living masterpiece for all to enjoy. It's a gem! See the show "Scrap" the critics!

FANTASTIC MUST SEE FAMILY FRIENDLY SHOW
I had no expectations going into this show, and it blew me away.... Amazing acting, memorable characters, great songs and singing and truly wonderful storyline. I can't say enough good things. It's a must see!

WANTED TO LOVE IT, BUT NO
Sorry. I hated the show. Every song was over the top and most of them brought the story to a halt. Show stoppers, by definition, STOP THE SHOW. Not that there was much story to begin with. A couple of lines, Big Fancy Song. A few more lines, Big Fancy Song. Start. Stop. Start. Stop. I'm really tired of real life being white washed for the stage. PT Barnum was a racist prig, but The Greatest Showman made him a hero; Peter Pan ruined the lives of the Llewelyn Davies children. Infidelity is okay if it is REAL love? Children will forget the death of their parents after a chipper song or a hug from a stranger in the park? Oh, for the love! There were some nice touches, such as whenever the kids were the focus and the opening London song. The sparkly death of a character was very pretty but totally weird and the rest of the characters had glitter on the bottom of their shoes for the rest of the performance. Talk about keeping her with them forever...
