High Winds Destroy Finding Neverland Banners (Photos)

findingneverlandposterBroadway’s Finding Neverland may sail the seas daily as the musical tells J.M. Barrie’s classic story of how Peter became Pan. But even the extreme weather in New York City this week proved slightly too much for this ship as high winds lead to torn sails, luckily only outside the theatre not affecting last evening’s performance. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at the Finding Neverland banners destroyed by high winds in New York City on Tuesday!

As high winds roared up and down the East Coast Tuesday, Broadway’s Lunt Fontanne Theatre managed to sustain some minor damage to its front of house banners that hang from the facade of the theater above its marquee overhang. Luner on Theatre noticed the damage while walking down 46th Street yesterday afternoon.

The banners which display cast members Laura Michelle Kelly, Melanie Moore (Now in Fiddler On The Roof) and Kelsey Grammer as well as text related to the show were seen ripped in half Tuesday afternoon still blowing in the wind long after they ripped.

Several pieces from the torn banners were seen lingering on top of the marquee overhang above the entrance to the theater with several pieces just inches from falling off onto the street below.

Upon returning to The Lunt Fontanne Theater today, Luner on Theatre discovered the banners have since been removed entirely leaving the theaters facade entirely blank as you can see below.

While Finding Neverland has not confirmed any details regarding the banners, we have no doubt replacements are on the way and a new front of house display will be up soon on 46th street! We’re looking forward to seeing that new display soon.
