Kelsey Grammer Sets Return Date to Finding Neverland
Broadway.com has confirmed the dates for the previously reported return of Kelsey Grammer to Finding Neverland. The Emmy winner, who originated the role of Charles Frohman in the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award-winning tuner, will land in the production on January 19, 2016 for a limited engagement through February 28 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The role is currently being played by Terrence Mann; Anthony Warlow was Grammer's first replacement.
Before Neverland, Grammer most recently appeared on Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles, earning a Tony nomination for his performance as Georges. His additional Great White Way credits include Macbeth and Othello. He won four Emmy Awards for his performance as the titular radio psychiatrist in the long-running hit series Frasier.
Directed by Diane Paulus and featuring a score by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham, Finding Neverland follows the story of J.M. Barrie and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies. Llewelyn Davies' children eventually became Barrie's inspiration to write Peter Pan.
Along with Mann, the cast presently includes Matthew Morrison, Laura Michelle Kelly, Carolee Carmello and Teal Wicks.
