Don't miss Finding Neverland at the Fabulous Fox Theater! #BroadwayinAtlanta
My son and I had the distinct pleasure of going to see the Broadway in Atlanta production of Finding Neverland on opening night at the Fabulous Fox Theater. We have seen numerous shows there but after seeing this one, my son said “Thank you for bringing me, this one is my favorite!” I have to say I was blown away because he nor I had any expectations going in. I didn’t tell him we were going to the show until we arrived at the theater and I had was not familiar with the show. I actually thought it was a take on the classic, Peter Pan...and in a way it was, it is the story of the author J.M. Barrie and how he finds inspiration to write the play after a chance meeting with the Llewelyn family in Kensington Park. The family is composed of Sylvia and her 4 fun loving boys.
The music was phenomenal. On more than one occasion I found myself tapping my foot and wanted to dance along with the cast of characters. The show delved into the world of imagination and the visual effects were spectacular. This is a show the entire family can truly enjoy, my son will be ten on Sunday and this was a birthday treat (we attended the 7:30 show on a school night). He was attentive for the entire musical. It was filled with dialogue that could be appreciated by the young and innuendo for the adults in the audience.
We were entertained by the real life characters and there were appearances by Peter Pan, Captain Hook and Tinkerbell. My absolute favorite scene was when Captain Hook entered the psyche of J.M. Barrie. Overall, this is a can’t miss show. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I realized this was a show about “the making of Peter Pan” because it was a totally new story for me. Finding Neverland is playing at the Fabulous Fox theater from now until May 21st. Be sure to get your tickets and treat your family to what is sure to be one of your favorite Broadway in Atlanta musicals! Tickets are available on the Fabulous Fox Theater website.
