The Broadway version of Finding Neverland is finally taking flight.

The new musical, which is based on the 2004 movie starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, began previews Sunday in New York City – and PEOPLE got an exclusive sneak peek at photos from the show.

The Harvey Weinstein-produced adaption of the Peter Pan backstory stars Tony nominees Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer.

The Glee actor, 36, stars in the leading role as Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie, while the Frasier alum, 60, plays famed stage producer Charles Frohman.

Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, the show tells the story of the Scottish playwright Barrie and the family who inspired him to write the classic tale of the Lost Boys on the island of Neverland.

British actress Laura Michelle Kelly (Mary Poppins), 34, also stars in the show as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, the mother of the four boys who inspired the Peter Pan adventures.

The curtain goes up April 15 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in N.Y.C.
