Reviews

Miami Herald – 06/15/2017

“four adorable singing kids…the appeal of the brothers (played by a rotating cast of boys)”

Greasy – 06/14/2017

“The 4 boys are especially fine being boys who just happen to be singers and dancers as naturally as they are pirates and whatever else their imaginations bring to their every day play.”

SFL Insider – 06/13/2017

“each person in the ensemble including all the children in the play were extremely talented, especially Ben Krieger who plays Peter.”

Broadway World Orlando – 06/08/2017

“The shining stars in the production are the Llewelyn Davies boys played by Finn Faulconer, Mitchell Wray, Jordan Cole and Ben Krieger as Peter. Krieger was especially amazing – he has a beautiful voice and the acting chops to match!”

Beauty and the Beets – 06/07/2017

“for me it was the young cast of children that was the most impressive. I was taken back by their stage presence, their comedic one-liners, and their ability to draw the audience in with emotion gut wrenching acting.”

Culturess – 06/07/2017

“The brightest star in production is Peter, played by Ben Krieger. His character has the biggest transformation in the show. From the inward, unsure boy to the imaginative young man filled with confidence, this young actor played the part powerfully.”

Mix 105.1 – 06/07/2017

“Barrie…meets Sylvia Llewelyn Davis…and her boys George (Finn Faulconer), Peter (Ben Krieger), Jack (Mitchell Wray) and Michael (Jordan Cole) while strolling through Kensington Park with his dog. It is immediately noticeable that young Peter has lost his belief in fun since the death of his father…The role of Peter is not only vocally demanding, but the nuanced acting required to make the character authentically come to life is impressively delivered by the young Krieger. When he is onstage, no matter how many others share the stage with him, it’s hard to take your eyes off him. He’s that good.”

Orlando Weekly – 06/07/2017

“the kids are all terrific”

Orlando Sentinal – 06/06/2017

“On opening night at Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, a quartet of young actors and a shaggy canine added sparkle … But how about those kids? … Keep an eye on Finn Faulconer, Mitchell Wray, Jordan Cole and especially Ben Krieger, who played Peter on opening night. These youngsters can sing — and were bright spots”

Triangle Explorer – 05/26/2017

“[The young actors] did a fantastic job with complex performances and vocals beyond their years. On Tuesday night, Mitchell Wray played Peter, with Finn Faulconer as George, Tyler Hennessy as Jack; and Jordan Cole rounded out the foursome as Michael. All the more impressive is the fact that the boys rotate their roles meaning they have to be prepared for different lines and opposite cues on varying nights as they fill the different roles each night.”

Talkin’ Broadway – 05/25/2017

“The roles of her four sons are shared among numerous boys in the cast, and the actors at the performance I saw stole the show: Jordan Cole as Michael, Finn Faulconer as George, Tyler Hennessy as Jack, and Mitchell Wray as the world-weary Peter.”

Herald Sun – 05/24/2017

“The boys did a great job, with Wray as Peter, a boy who, rather than never growing up like the Peter Pan character, instead is urged by Barrie to rediscover his childhood.”

Triangle Arts and Entertainment – 05/24/2017

“And the boys, it must be said, are absolutely fabulous- one of the best parts of the show. Mitchell Wray is particularly endearing as the troubled Peter while Jordan Cole is absolutely adorable in his portrayal of little Michael.”

My AJC – 05/17/2017

“Ben Krieger imbued his Peter with credible conflict; Finn Faulconer sang beautifully as George; Mitchell Wray demonstrated grace and maturity as Jack; and Jordan Cole rounded out the foursome as the adorable Michael.”

NOLA.com – 05/10/2017

“The four Llewelyn Davies boys, led by Ben Krieger as the pensive Peter, are adorably precocious.”

Broadway World San Antonio – 05/03/2017

“The children in the show were a real hit as well. In the performance, Peter was played by Ben Krieger, George was played by Finn Faulconer, Jack was played by Mitchell Wray, and young Michael was played by Tyler Patrick Hennessy. Each of the boys showed their individual abilities and talents that made you fall in love with their characters. However, young Ben Krieger as Peter really was able to shine when he sang “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground” with Tighe. The connection between the characters was evident but the connection between the two actors seemed very clear. They both enjoyed what they were doing as they shared the moment onstage.”

Broadway World Houston – 04/26/2017

“”Play” is a crowd-pleaser with the four boys giving a natural and endearing performance.”

Broadway World National Tours – 04/18/2017

“The child performers are among the best you could hope to see in any production. They are all excellent singers, actors and dancers and bring energy to the show. Ben Krieger is a particular standout as Peter. His vocals are impressive, and his skillful acting makes his character particularly sympathetic.”

Post Crescent – 04/18/2017

“The four boys George (Finn Faulconer), Jack (Mitchell Wray), Michael (Jordan Cole) and Peter (Ben Krieger) are nothing short of heartwarming. Krieger is especially worthy of note in his portrayal of Peter, the oldest of the boys. He shows acting and vocal chops well beyond his years — “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground” being particularly noteworthy.”

San Diego Union Tribune – 04/06/2017

“The corps of child actors playing Sylvia’s sons are all poised and multi-talented, particularly Colin Wheeler as George and Ben Krieger as Peter.”

BroadwayWorld Los Angeles – 03/27/2017

“The young actors who played the Davies boys were also all wonderful, particularly Krieger as Peter (his beautifully-sung duet with Barrie in “When Your Feet Don’t Touch The Ground” is an emotional highlight).”

LA Times – 03/25/2017

“At Tuesday’s opening, Ben Kreiger played the sensitive Peter, abetted by Finn Faulconer, Mitchell Wray and Jordan Cole. Their performance of a play written by Peter will tug at the heart strings.”

Edge Media Network – 03/22/2017

“All four boys are totally charming with Krieger as Peter being the expected standout. His heartbreaking duet with Barrie “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground” turned the audience into a teary mess and deservedly so.”

OC Register – 03/22/2017

“The boys are engagingly bright and polite, from Krieger’s Peter and Finn Faulconer’s surprisingly mature George to Jordan Cole and Mitchell Wray, who each are out-and-out adorable as little tykes Michael and Jack…”

SoCal Thrills – 03/21/2017

“…the boys in this show held their own, dazzling the audience with singing and musical prowess. I am impressed by any child who can play their own instrument and sing in front of an audience, let alone simultaneously pull on the heartstrings of over 1,800 audience-members. Ben Kreiger did an amazing job as Peter, the brother who needed the most influence to reach his inner-child. Kreiger’s vocal duets with Billy Harrigan Tighe were beautiful and pure.”

Stage Scene LA – 03/21/2017

“Ben Krieger’s Peter proves particularly touching in an Act Two scene opposite Tighe, Finn Faulconer scores bonus points for his banjo-strumming George, Mitchell Wray and Jordan Cole are marvelous too as Jack and Michael…”

Talkin’ Broadway – 03/15/2017

“the four boys who play Sylvia’s children (Ben Krieger, Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, and Mitchell Wray) are delivering beautiful portrayals…”

Daily News – 03/02/2017

“The four small lads…form a backyard band and sing a 1960s-sounding pop tune that, with the performers’ charming voices and intense concentration…”

LA Weekly – 03/02/2017

“…the kids deliver lively performances.”

PressPass LA – 02/28/2017

“…The four children are played with incredible charm and wit…”

CA Highways – 02/26/2017

“The Llewelyn Davies children are portrayed by multiple actors…All were cute and fun to watch and sang well. I was particularly impressed with them in the second act where one plays ukulele (and considering they rotate, this means that most play uke).”

Daily Titan – 02/26/2017

“Among the main stars and the phenomenal supporting cast, the boys steal the show every time they are in a scene.”

Broadway World Los Angeles – 02/23/2017

“The four children have tremendous chemistry together and give truth to the old adage: never grow up! They are: the aforementioned Krieger as Peter, Finn Faulconer as George, Mitchell Wray as Jack and Jordan Cole as Michael.”

Arts in LA – 02/22/2017

“…infectiously talented Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, and Mitchell Wray…the show-stopping production number “We’re All Made of Stars,” which features Krieger, Faulconer, Wray, and Cole in the most smile-inducing specimen of bonded sibling behavior since Seven Brides for Seven Bothers”

Hollywood Reporter – 02/22/2017

“And the children at this performance — Ben Krieger as Peter, Finn Faulconer as George, Mitchell Wray as Jack and Jordan Cole as Michael — were likable, too, pulling off complex bits and songs like pros. They definitely deserved a hand.”

Santa Monica Observer – 02/22/2017

“But then there is one of the most amazing and gifted young performers on stage today, Ben Krieger as Peter. Ben has clearly found Neverland and there is no doubt but that his future will be brilliant.”

Stage and Cinema – 02/22/2017

“Particularly poignant [performers] are the changeable Davies children (on opening night: Ben Krieger as Peter, Finn Falconer as George, Mitchell Wray as Jack, and Jordan Cole as Michael).”

Review Journal – 02/15/2017

“…her darling sons (Ben Krieger, Finn Faulconer, Jordan Cole and Mitchell Wray were the opening night quartet), whose delightfully fanciful play helps ease these lost boys’ heartbreak at losing their father.”

East Bay Times – 01/25/2017

“The four young boys (Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Ben Krieger and Mitchell Wray on opening night) actually do give Sammy a run for his money (or dog bone as the case may be) as they beguile the audience with their youthful energy, especially in the backyard band number “We’re All Made of Stars.””

GPattridge.com – 01/20/2017

“Playing the four boys are a group of young performers who all have bright futures in the performing arts if they so choose. On the night I attended the Lost Boys included Ben Krieger (Peter), Finn Faulconer (George), Mitchell Wray (Jack–“There’s so many forks!”), and Jordan Cole (Michael–“Do you believe in fairies?”).”

SF Examiner – 01/19/2017

“The kids are more than all right. They are fantastic.

The brotherhood of Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Mitchell Wray and Ben Krieger is genuine and enchanting. Stand-out Kreiger, as Peter, impressively holds his own dramatic weight and vocal chops in his scenes with Kern, becoming the emotional core of the night.”

Broadway World St. Louis – 12/16/2016

“Ben Krieger is delightful as Peter, the introverted boy that Barrie teaches to harness his imagination and become a kid again. Finn Faulconer is also quite good as George, Mitchell Wray is a delight as Jack, and Jordan Cole rounds out the group of cute and playful boys that inspire Barrie. There is a rotation for the boys so you may also see: Eli Tokash, Colin Wheeler, and Tyler Patrick Hennessy essaying the roles.”

Theater Dogs – 01/19/2017

“The real spark of the show comes from the young actors playing the four Llewelyn Davies children. At Wednesday’s performance, the roster included Finn Faulconer as George, Ben Krieger as Peter, Mitchell Wray as Jack and Jordan Cole as Michael. In Act 2, the brothers put on one of Peter’s plays (“We’re All Made of Stars”), and it’s by far the best song and scene in the show, with a natural charm and humor that eludes pretty much everything else before or after it.”

Critical Blast – 12/09/2016

“The real stars of the production, however, are the lads. Messrs. Krieger, Faulconer, Wray and Cole were fantastic, each given moments to shine, usually with a witty line, like inquiring of Mr. Frohman, “Do you believe in faeries?” The theatre veteran did a double-take with the audience and replied, “Young man, this is theatre!””

Playback STL – 12/09/2016

“…in Finding Neverland, the roles played by these boys were exactly what I would expect from children. Carefree and playful, these boys stole my heart. While there are seven boys touring with the company, on this night, Jordan Cole as Michael; Mitchell Wray as Jack; Finn Faulconer as George; and Ben Krieger as Peter all deserved the highest praise of the evening. While Finn Faulconer is the coolest name I have ever heard for an actor, keep an eye on Ben Krieger—this boy is going to be a massive star in the future.”

Ladue news – 12/08/2016

“The four Davies boys are alternately played throughout the show’s run at The Fox by Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Tyler Patrick Hennessy, Ben Krieger, Eli Tokash, Colin Wheeler and Mitchell Wray. On opening night Tokash did a fine job portraying the overly serious Peter, still stinging from the death of his father; Falconer was the happy-go-lucky George; Wray played the amenable Jack; and Cole was the impish young Michael.”

STL Today – 12/07/2016

“And real acting chops come from the boys who play Sylvia’s sons. There are a number of them, but the opening-night quartet — Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Eli Tokash and Mitchell Wray — are just super, with excellent diction and charm.”

Chicago Theater Beat – 11/29/2016

“The Llewelyn Davies children – played on opening night by Ben Krieger (Peter), Finn Faulconer (George), Mitchell Wray (Jack) and Jordan Cole (Michael) are all real finds. They’re cute and funny without being cloying. They share roles with each other as well as with Eli Tokash (who covers George, Peter and Jack) and Tyler Patrick Hennessey, who plays Jack at some performances.”

Chicago Now – 11/28/2016

“The boys Ben Krieger (Peter), Finn Faulconer (George), Mitchell Wray (Jake) and Jordan Cole (Michael) were amazing. Their voices were divine, energy contagious, and they were all cute as buttons.”

Chicagoland Musical Theatre – 11/25/2016

“The Llewelyn Davies children are played by a host of talented boys, Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Tyler Patrick Hennessy, Ben Krieger, Eli Tokash and Mitchell Wray. No matter what combination of actors, the performance will be top-notch. Their familiarity with the stage and each other exudes confidence and fun while also managing to harness the very real shades of grief.”

Chicago Theater Review – 11/24/2016

“And the children, in particular, steal this production, led by a very talented young Ben Krieger, as Peter, and include Finn Faulconer, as George, Mitchell Wray, as Jack and dear little Jordan Cole, as Michael.”

Chicago Tribune – 11/24/2016

“…scene-stealer Jordan Cole…”

Chicago Sun Times – 11/23/2016

“…depressed Peter (Ben Krieger), who could be something of his alter ego; and the more mischievous George (Finn Faulconer), Jake (Mitchell Wray) and Michael (Jordan Cole). These four young actors (who alternate with several other boys) are superb, and prove especially beguiling when they team up as a backyard band to sing “We’re All Made of Stars.””

Daily Herald – 11/23/2016

“…alternately played with ample cuteness by the six child actors Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Tyler Patric Hennessy, Ben Krieger, Eli Tokash and Mitchell Wray…”

Showbiz Chicago – 11/23/2016

“The Davies Boys played by Ben Krieger (Peter), Finn Faulconer (George), Mitchell Wray (Jack), and Jordan Cole ( Michael) were all incredible. Their chemistry as brothers was wonderful and “We’re All Made of Stars” was a huge hit with the audience.”

Stage and Cinema – 11/23/2016

“Particularly poignant are the changeable Davies children (Finn Falconer, Ben Krieger, Eli Tokash, Mitchell Wray, Tyler Patrick Hennessy, and Jordan Cole).”

CSU Ohio – 11/22/2016

“…on opening night, the charming Finn Faulconer, Mitchell Wray, Jordan Cole and Eli Tokash…”

Cool Cleveland – 11/03/2016

“Opening night, Eli Tokash was outstanding as Peter. The young man showed great sensitivity and developed a clear concept of the importance of the role. The other boys for that night, Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer and Mitchell Wray, were also excellent.”

News-Herald – 11/03/2016

“The actors playing the four Davies children on opening night — Eli Tokash as Peter, Mitchell Wray as Jack, Finn Faulconer as George and Jordan Cole as Michael — are enchanting. They are natural in their playfulness and handle all the key acting moments that come their way.”

Tribune Herald – 11/03/2016

“One of the most memorable musical moments also is one of the quietest: “We’re All Made of Stars,” a showcase for the four Davies boys (played by Eli Tokash, Finn Falconer, Mitchell Wray and Jordan Cole on opening night).”

Rochester City Newspaper – 10/28/2016

“Perhaps the most enjoyable number is “We’re All Made of Stars,” which is performed by the Llewelyn Davies brothers: Eli Tokash (Peter), Finn Faulconer (George), Mitchell Wray (Jack), and Jordan Cole (Michael). For young performers, the four showed an incredible aptitude onstage, easily keeping up with the adult performers around them.”

Democrat and Chronicle – 10/26/2016

“Maybe their adorable British accents help, but the boys are wonderfully believable as they argue, play and interact. (In this performance, they were Ben Krieger as Peter, Finn Faulconer as George, Mitchell Wray as Jack and Jordan Cole as Michael.) Krieger stole hearts in the duet with Kern, “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground.””

Post Gazette – 10/19/2016

“Here, the sharper, sadder second act includes the duet “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground,” impactful for its simplicity and showcasing the impressive voices of Mr. Kern and 12-year-old Ben Krieger.”
