“THE BEST NEW MUSICAL TO OPEN THIS SEASON.” -THE NEW YORK TIMES 2015 Winner of 5 Tony®Awards Including Best musical OCTOBER 25–30, 2016

Original Broadway Cast Portrait. Photo by Joan Marcus.

Every once in a while a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark musical can. The “groundbreaking,” “uplifting” and “exquisite” new musical FUN HOME was the event of the Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike, winning five 2015 Tony® Awards including BEST MUSICAL and making history along the way. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, “FUN HOME is extraordinary, a rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway.” (The New York Times)

BROADWAY ’S BIGGEST NEW HIT!

“MAGNIFICIENT!

FAR AND AWAY, THE BEST MUSICAL OF THE SEASON.”

-NPR

Winner! Best Musical Broadway.com’s Audience Choice award MAY 23–28, 2017 FINDING NEVERLAND is Broadway’s biggest new hit and the winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for BEST MUSICAL! This breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart” (Time Magazine). Vogue cheers, “it’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!”

Directed by visionary Tony® winner Diane Paulus, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.  Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers.  With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR).
