Sandy Duncan Returns to World of Peter Pan in "Finding Neverland"

    Sandy Duncan will find "Neverland" this February.

    Sandy Duncan was Tony-nominated for her role as the high-flying boy-who-won't-grow-up in the 1979 revival of "Peter Pan." And now, almost 37 years later, Duncan will return to Pan's world in the Broadway musical "Finding Neverland."

    "The Hogan Family"-star will play Madame du Maurier in the production -- the role originated by Carolee Carmello, beginning Feb. 9. Her run, opposite Kelsey Grammer and Tony Yazbeck, will conclude March 27.

    Duncan's casting is a bit of a full-circle moment, as both 1979's "Peter Pan" and "Finding Neverland" call the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre home.

    "It’s surreal being back," Duncan said, in a statement. "There’s a real sense of nostalgia for me in joining this company. I’m looking forward to being a part of the story from a different angle."

    Adapted from the 2004 Oscar-winning film of the same name by bookwriter James Graham, "Finding Neverland" features a score from Take That's Gary Barlow and Grammy-winner Eliot Kennedy. "So You Think You Can Dance" Emmy-winner Mia Michaels choreographs.
