Kelsey Grammer to star in West End transfer of Finding Neverland
According to the Daily Mail Kelsey Grammer, star of the popular televisions series Fraiser, is to make his West End debut when Gary Barlowe’s Finding Neverland transfers to the West End later this year. Grammer, who is apparently still in negotiations, currently plays the role of Charles Frohman / Captain James Hook in the Broadway production. Prior to Finding Neverland, Grammer’s last way Broadway role was 5 years ago in La Cage Aux Follies opposite Douglas Hodge.
Musical theatre star Alfie Boe is also in negotiations to star in the West End production.
Based on the hit film of the same name, Finding Neverland tells the fascinating story of how Peter became Pan. The production which has been running on Broadway for a year, underwent many changes from the original Leicester production and will see further changes to the running-time, writing, orchestration and song placement when it transfers to London.
Finding Neverland has a book by James Graham, with music and lyrics by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and choreography by Mia Michaels.
