Terrence Mann to enter 'Finding Neverland' as Captain Hook

NEW YORK (AP) — Broadway's next Captain Hook will be Terrence Mann.

The producers of "Finding Neverland" said Friday that Mann, a three-time Tony Award nominee who was last on Broadway in "Pippin," will play the dual role of theatrical producer Charles Frohman and a fearsome Hook.

"Finding Neverland" is an adaptation from the 2004 whimsical film of the same name about a widow whose four young sons inspired J.M. Barrie to write the children's classic "Peter Pan."

Mann will star opposite ex-"Glee" star Matthew Morrison as Barrie starting Sept. 29, taking over from Anthony Warlow, who, in turn, took over from Kelsey Grammer.

Mann originated the roles of the Beast in "Beauty and the Beast," Inspector Javert in "Les Miserables" and Rum Tum Tugger in "Cats."
