Finding Neverland

March 6, 2013

A grand big budget attempt to transfer the absolutely charming movie “Finding Neverland” into a musical comedy. I didn’t laugh once. Whereas the movie captures the magic of the theatre inside the reality of the movie, the fatal flaw of this musical is that it loses the magic of the theatre within the complete lack of reality of this Victorian almost pantomime. A competent cast struggle through lots of dead spots, poor staging and too many songs with singing children. I will be shocked if this production does not sink in Leicester without a trace.
