Finding Neverland found its J.M. Barrie in Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, and now it has added another notable name.
Fraiser‘s Kelsey Grammer will play Charles Frohman, the producer played by Dustin Hoffman in the 2004 film. Grammer last appeared on Broadway in the 2010 revival of La Cage Aux Folles. “I couldn’t be more thrilled that Kelsey is joining our cast as Charles Frohman, J.M Barrie’s producer,” Finding Neverland‘s producer Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “He might be the best theater producer on Broadway this season! I was an investor in La Cage when Kelsey did it and he was sensational as audiences and critics will attest. This is an absolute coup for this show.”
Grammer recently returned to the world of sitcoms with FX’s Partners.
Previews for Finding Neverland begin in March 2015.
