'Finding Neverland' at Academy of Music: Adult musical masquerading as a children's show

Finding Neverland. Through Nov. 26 at the Academy of Music, 240 S. Broad St. Tickets $25-$614. Information: kimmelcenter.org,  215-731-3333

    'Finding Neverland' at Academy of Music: Adult musical masquerading as a children's show
    "Finding Neverland," through Nov. 26 at the Academy of Music, is the prequel to "Peter Pan," the story of how Barrie created the tale. This touring show, one of the Kimmel Center's Broadway Philadelphia series, is a musical that is an odd amalgam of whimsy and pathos, an adult drama that pretends to be a children's show.
