An extraordinary musical that celebrates the magic of theatre and the power of a great story. Based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some!
Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him. But his son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.
Why we love it: Big Fish is a story overflowing with heart and humor. We’re producing the intimate 12-actor version that’s perfect for our company.
