Gary Barlow has teased that a London production of his Finding Neverland musical is ‘coming’.

Finding Neverland features songs by Take That’s Gary Barlow with Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham.


The musical is based on the 1998 play The Man Who Was Peter Pan and its subsequent film Finding Neverland which starred Johnny Depp.

It tells the story of playwright J. M. Barrie and the inspiration behind his iconic character Peter Pan.

The musical first premiered at Leicester’s Curve Theatre in 2012 before being rewritten for a US production in Chicago and Broadway run where it ran between 2015 and 2016. West End stars Laura Michelle Kelly and Alfie Boe were among the casts during its run in New York.

Although there’s been much talk of the show returning to the UK, as yet nothing has been announced.

But in a tweet to one fan recently, Barlow insisted simply: “It’s coming”.

He added to the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye that a brand new production was in the works with an updated book and songs.

“It’s a new show,” he teased.

With Barlow not revealing any more, we’ll just have to watch this space!
