Lost Boy, Super High and Belting Showtunes
There are stories, and then there are stories of the stories behind those stories. Because, science. The popular Broadway stage musical, Finding Neverland, launching at Popejoy Hall on Dec. 13 at 7:30pm, recounts playwright J.M. Barrie’s invention of Peter Pan. Basically, he fell for a hot widow, then stole her four kids’ imaginary friend, Peter, and got famous. While exploiting child labor might seem unkind now, in jolly Dickensian London that shit was just called “work,” okay? Too young to remember Peter Pan? Dig: Skinny elfen dude, green tights refuses to grow up, flies around, befriends kids who forget about him as adults. Sadder than you realized, really. Thank God for peppy showtunes. All ages welcome, tickets range from $43 to $83. Check popejoypresents.com for more deets. Additional shows Dec. 14 to 16. (Alisa Valdes)

The incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters, Peter Pan.
Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.
