Springfield News-Leader – 01/30/2019

“Offering fine support are the boys alternating as the Llewelyn Davies children…”

BroadwayWorld Dayton – 01/18/2019

“…Ethan Stokes, Brody Bett, Caleb Reese Paul and Seth Erdley. The boys were integral to the story and all did a marvelous job.”

Dayton Local – 01/17/2019

“The parts of Sylvia’s four sons are rotated, on the night I attended, Peter was played by Ethan Stokes. Stokes, like each of the boys, possesses a talent level way beyond his years. From cute childlike antics, even at a fancy dinner party, to heart wrenching drama the boys expertly portray every emotion. Furthermore, for a rendition of ‘We’re All Made of Stars,’ the boys form a boy’s band that I would actually go see in concert.”

BroadwayWorld Madison – 01/13/2019

“While I ordinarily find a stage with children and a dog to be a trite gimmick, in this production it was not only necessary, but worked very well, thanks to the professionalism and talent of those kids! Seth Erdley, Paul Schoeller, Josiah Smothers, and Brody Bett, all did an amazing job at their portrayal of the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired the show. Their vocals, choreography and theatrical presence brought a sense of realism to this fantastic tale of a man finding his own inner child.”

Isthmus – 01/12/2019

“And a massive round of applause should be given to child actor Caleb Reese Paul, who plays her son, Peter Davies, whose relationship with Barrie draws him out of his shell. The two sing a powerfully sad duet, ‘When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground.’”

The Gazette – 12/30/2018

“The Llewelyn Davies boys were adorable throughout, but their standout moment came when they whipped up their big number, ‘We’re All Made of Stars,’ dreaming of possibilities.”

Broadway World Albuquerque – 12/14/2018

“Caleb Reese Paul (Peter), Paul Schoeller (George), Ethan Stokes (Jack), and Josiah Smothers (Michael) are phenomenal as the Llewellyn Davies children, never missing a beat.”

Broadway World Salt Lake City – 12/05/2018

“The children, who rotate their roles nightly, are phenomenal. At the reviewed performance, Ethan Stokes played George, Josiah Smothers played Jack, and Brody Bett played Michael. Seth Erdley gave an exceptional performance as Peter.”

Front Row Reviewers Utah – 12/05/2018

“Stokes, Erdley, Bett, and Paul each hold their own onstage, equals to those they work with. In a show with many great things about it, these young actors may be what’s best about Finding Neverland. Even in duets, some with one of the brothers, but Peter’s duets with Barrie, all boys clearly and strongly hit the notes, keep in character, and are thoroughly adorable.”

Front Row Reviewers Utah – 11/30/2018

“Breathing believability into the realistic aspect of this story are the fatherless children, the Davies brothers who inspire the creation of the Darling brothers and the lost boys, Ethan Stokes as George, Paul Schoeller as Peter, Caleb Reese Paul as Jack, and Brody Bett as Michael- a darling favorite of mine no pun intended. They encompass true boyhood. They are playful, funny, genuine, and comfortable onstage. And they rotate playing different brothers depending on the performance night, along with two other young performers Seth Erdley and Josiah Smothers. Talent flows from the ability to handle that rotation alone, but I haven’t even started talking about their singing voices. They are perfectly on pitch and sing beautiful harmonies number after number. I’ve never heard a better voice from a young man as I did tonight from Schoeller. He sings a duet with leading man Sullivan, and more than holds his own and carries powerful harmonies and emotion-impressive talent from one so young.”

The Spokesman-Review – 11/16/2018

“The young actors playing the Davies boys Thursday night – Stokes, Paul Schoeller, Caleb Reese Paul and Brody Bett – all deserve high praise. Each performed beautifully, and their performance of ‘We’re All Made of Stars’ was particularly moving.”

Broadway World National Tours – 10/17/2018

“Throughout the show there are many moments that tug on the heartstrings. In a cast composed primarily of adults, Caleb Reese Paul as Peter holds his own; especially in the scenes opposite Sullivan where the two interact directly. The cheeky We Own the Night was a particular favorite for me, and a nice break to a dull adult dinner party and a great example of the imagination of a child breaking through the world of the adults. When Reese Paul and the other Llewelyn Davies children prepare for their own backyard show with the song We’re all Made of Stars the cast’s youngest performers warm your heart with their energy and enthusiasm.”

GR Mag – 10/10/2018

“An extremely talented group of actors, the boys often stole the show with well-told jokes and brilliant vocals.”
