Finding Neverland

Last night was the start of the 2018-19 theater season. I knew nothing about the musical except that it was based on the Johnny Depp/Kate Winslet movie that I reviewed here YEARS ago. It's about how the story of "Peter Pan" comes to be. I didn't know any of the songs or how elaborate the production would be. I was pleasantly surprised! The musical numbers were all well written, but the one thing that "bugged" me was that they all seemed to have a pop music familiarity to them. There were certain lyrics or musical phrases that sounded like they were from something else. *shrugs* But it all worked. There were some very good scenes that had me in awe how they pulled them off. And of course I have to comment about the fursuit. Yes! There was a Nana fursuit. It was a fullsuit and quite nicely done. Kitty stopped me from yelling out "put your head back on!" *lol* There was also a real dog in the production (the inspiration for the character of Nana) who was very well behaved. The real dog sniffing the butt of the dog fursuit got a great laugh. So it was nice to see something new and different. I hope some of the other new musicals we'll be seeing will be just as good.
