Finding Neverland San Diego Tickets
About Finding Neverland
Based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, Finding Neverland tells the story of author J.M. Barrie and the family who inspired Peter Pan, Barrie’s greatest work. Finding Neverland interweaves Barrie's real-life story of the magical adventures that take place within the world of Captain Hook and The Lost Boys.
The Inspiration Behind Peter Pan
In the late 1800s, Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie had been struggling to find inspiration. Then he had a chance encounter that changed everything: Barrie met the Llewelyn family, which was comprised of four young brothers and their widowed mother, at a park. Barrie soon became a close friend of the family.
Peter Pan was inspired by the boundless imaginations and make-believe adventures of the Llewelyn boys. Barrie set out to write a play that was like no other and, as a result, astounded London theatergoers. The magic of his classic tale still holds strong today, warming hearts around the world.
