Finding Neverland Tempe Tickets
A magical production based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, the musical takes audiences into the story behind the beloved character of Peter Pan. For years, J.M. Barrie struggled to write a hit play. The story begins as he faces dismal reviews of his most recent effort. Lost, Barrie sets out on a search for inspiration. As he strolls through London’s Kensington Gardens, he meets a beautiful widow and her four young boys. Intrigued by their play and their imagination, he begins to meet them and their mother regularly. Their make-believe fascinates him. Despite objections from his wife and the boy’s grandmother, he becomes a friend to the mother and almost like a father to the boys.
Inspiration strikes him. He decides to write a play based on their make-believe world. As he writes, his marriage falls apart. Once completed, he struggles to find a theater to host his play. Finally, he finds one to stage Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Never Grew Up. With a little cleverness, he ensures the play will succeed. A hit with the audience, his momentary glory fades as he finds himself in a new struggle that will lead him deeper into Neverland.
