Page Six reports that the actor has signed up to help produce the show, with a source quoted as saying “Rarely do celebrities invest in projects, so this is a big sign of [Bryan’s] faith in the show.” Cranston had seen a performance of the show early February after which he tweeted, “I saw this new musical in Boston and cried with joy... But anyone thinking of repeating that better Tread Lightly. “

The musical has been brought to the stage by film producer Harvey Weinstein, marking his first foray into theatre. Based on the 2004 film of the same name (starring Johnny Depp), Finding Neverland follows Peter Pan author JM Barrie and his friendship with widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies and her young sons.

‘Glee’ star Matthew Morrison heads up the show’s cast as Barrie, marking his return to the Broadway stage after a seven year absence. Speaking about the production, the 36 year old actor told Reuters, "At the end of the day, this is about the power of imagination, and what better place to explore that than in the theatre.”

‘Frasier’ actor Kelsey Grammer will also star, playing the dual roles of Captain Hook and Barrie's theatrical producer Charles Frohman. British theatre actress Laura Michelle Kelly, known for her role on stage as Mary Poppins has also been cast, along with Broadway veteran Carolee Carmello.

The show will feature musical numbers written by British singer Gary Barlow, of the pop group Take That, with choreography by Emmy Award-winning dancer Mia Michaels. Directing will be Tony Award winner Diane Paulus.

"The alchemy is mine and Diane has been the leader ever since and it has been great,” said producer Harvey Weinstein, who credits his four daughters with encouraging him to bring the musical to the stage.
