    Peter Pan is a well-known story held in the hearts of many. The narrative of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and the Darling child elicits fond childhood memories of flying children, pirates, crocodiles, and fairies. Finding Neverland takes a step beyond this story and focuses instead on the man who first brought the tale to life and his inspirations for the iconic fantasy. The musical telling of J.M. Barrie’s life no doubt but’s a romantic and comedic spin on an otherwise tragic story based on disease, death

    Sir James M. Barrie wrote a dystopian novel detailing the life a young boy that goes by the name of Peter Pan.
