Gossip: Matthew Morrison to star in Gary Barlow's Finding Neverland?

According to The Daily Mail, Glee's Matthew Morrison will play J. M. Barrie in a 'polished workshop presentation' of Finding Neverland in New York in late March.

Producers apparently hope they can then persuade Morrison to join the cast for a try-out production at the American Repertory Theatre in Massachusetts. If the try-out goes well the production could transfer to the West End or Broadway. Diane Paulus directs.

Gary Barlow is currently preparing to perform some of the numbers he has written for the musical at Saturday night’s premier Oscar party with actress Laura Michelle Kelly and his writing and lyricist partner Eliot Kennedy.

Finding Neverland, which is adapted from the Oscar-winning film, premiered at the Leicester Curve in 2012 to mixed reviews. Last year it was revealed producer Harvey Weinstein had asked the Take That star and former X Factor judge to write some new songs for the show.
