Terrence Mann In, Kelsey Grammer Out, in Finding Neverland
Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer will not be flying back to Finding Neverland on the Great White Way after taking a hiatus from the production over the summer. Instead, three-time Tony nominee Terrence Mann will step in as American producer Charles Frohman from September 29, taking over for Anthony Warlow. The Broadway.com Audience Choice Award-winning tuner is playing at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
It'll be a busy few months for Mann, who is then booked to move with Neverland co-star Carolee Carmello to star in Tuck Everlasting on the Great White Way this coming spring. Mann earned Tony nominations for Pippin, Beauty and the Beast and Les Misérables. His additional Broadway credits include The Addams Family, Lennon, The Rocky Horror Show, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Getting Away With Murder, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, Rags, Cats and Barnum.
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 (Matthew Morrison) and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Laura Michelle Kelly). Llewelyn Davies' children eventually became Barrie's inspiration to write Peter Pan.
Along with Morrison, Kelly, Warlow and Carmello, the cast also currently includes Teal Wicks, Casey Butler, Alex Dreier, Jackson Demott Hill, Noah Hinsdale, Christopher Paul Richards, Eli Tokash, Courtney Balan, Kristy Cates, Dana Costello, Colin Cunliffe, Rory Donovan, Chris Dwan, Francesca Granell, Kevin Kern, Josh Lamon, Nick McGough, Mary Page Nance, Emma Pfaeffle, Jonathan Ritter, Tyley Ross, Julius Anthony Rubio, Paul Slade Smith, Jaime Verazin, Ryan Worsing and Amy Yakima.
