"Finding Neverland" Original Broadway Cast Album - Capturing The Magic of This Timeless Musical
I got to watch "Finding Neverland" develop from its early previews at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge to its current Broadway form. Along the way, I have fallen in love with this music and this story. The cast album captures much of the magic of this wonderful show. The duet "Feet Don't Touch The Ground" between J.M. Barrie (Matthew Morrison) and Peter Llewellyn Davies (Aiden Gemme) is the emotional heart of this musical, and is beautifully rendered in this CD. Listing to this cast album over the past few days has reinforced my resolve to get back to Broadway to see the show one more time.
Other highlights are "Play," "Neverland", "Stronger," "Something About This Night" and the Finale.
