After the show, Julie Andrews and family took pictures with the cast and gushed over how much they enjoyed it. The cast was ecstatic, of course.

This is a photo taken backstage of Julie Andrews and Finding Neverland star Laura Michelle Kelly (who, coincidentally, originated the role of Mary Poppins in the stage version both in London and on Broadway).
Finding Neverland has played to packed houses at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues) since beginning performances in March.
Finding Neverland follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer – and the man – he yearns to be. Barrie finds the inspiration he’s been missing when he meets the beautiful widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael and Peter.
Delighted by the boys’ hilarious escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any the high-society London theatergoers have ever seen. It’s a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered— when you believe, you can fly.
Directed by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair), with music and lyrics by Gary Barlow (Take That) and Grammy® winner Eliot Kennedy, book by Olivier Award nominee James Graham, and choreography by Emmy Award®-winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium).
The Finding Neverland musical is packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, is a timeless story about the power of imagination...and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.
