Most of the people have probably seen the movie Peter Pan or have heard of the story, but do you know the story behind it? Well, the other day I had the opportunity to go see the play Finding Neverland. It is based off of the story behind Peter Pan, and here it is. . . A man named J.M Berrie, a playwright, was stuck and couldn't think of a new play idea that was original. One day, when walking through the park, he ran into a group of brothers and their mom, but one of the brothers stuck out to J.M. His name was Peter. Peter was different because he wasn't playing with his brothers, he couldn't play when all he could think about was how their father was no longer with them. Berrie's observations turned into more than just observations - he started to care for them, and a bond grow between him and the family.
The play overall was phenomenal, the sets were unbelievable, and the vocals and acting were outstanding. I would definitely recommend the play to anyone, or if you can't see the play definitely check out the movie Finding Neverland!
