“Finding Neverland” will open at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center on Tuesday, Nov. 7 and run through Sunday, Nov. 19.
We talked to Genevieve Holt, General Manager for Broadway in Cincinnati, to find out more about this hit production.
Q: What do you consider as some of the production’s highlights?
A: The show is visually stunning, and in particular, I love the sumptuous costumes. It also tells a fascinating story about J.M. Barrie’s life, how he dreamed up the world of Neverland, and the risks involved with bringing that story to the London stage.
Q: Do you have a favorite, scene, song or moment in the show?
A: I do – but I can’t tell you much about it without a spoiler alert. But there’s a moment at the end of this show that is so beautifully staged it will give you chills.
Q: How do the cast members and other aspects of the show (staging, lighting, costumes etc.) complement the script/story?
A: The cast really makes this show come alive, especially the children who ultimately give Barrie the courage and inspiration to follow his dreams.

Q: What’s the number one reason why audiences won’t want to miss the show?
A: It’s a deeply touching musical, and tells a fascinating background story that most people don’t know. It’s a gorgeous production, and well worth a night out.
