Contemporary audiences will have the chance to experience some of that wonder this summer when the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) recaptures the spirit of the boy who would never grow up in its premiere of “Finding Neverland.” The new musical, about the real-life genesis of Barrie’s groundbreaking work, runs from July 23 through Sept. 28.
As a composer, Mr. Aucoin twists familiar harmonies and sounds with elements of jazz and other complex rhythms. His opera librettos feature allusions to mythology, religion and history woven around the passions of larger-than-life characters.
The artistic director of the American Repertory Theater thinks theater should be more like a rock concert.
Graham shares what audiences can expect from the highly anticipated A.R.T. production.
“All the Way,” a play by Robert Schenkkan that the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge staged last fall, went on to Broadway and last night scooped up Tony awards for best play and for actor Bryan Cranston, who portrayed President Lyndon Baines Johnson and his efforts to convince Congress to enact the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

It’s a telling experience when you wake up the morning after seeing a play, and it’s still there with you, its spectacles, sounds and surprises pulsing in your mind hours after the theater emptied.
The American Repertory Theater, which continued a run of Broadway-bound productions this season, and the fringe Zeitgeist Stage Company took the most honors at Monday’s 32d annual Elliot Norton Awards for the best in local theater.
Despite its stylistic edge, the ART’s new production of “The Tempest” doesn’t blow up Shakespeare’s play so much as bring it alive in new garb.
