About The Show

Based on the hit 2003 film that is based on the incredible 1998 novel "Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions", this wonderful musical experience takes you on a grand adventure with an excellent cast of characters that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. With the focal point of the story revolving around father and son Edward and Will Bloom, Big Fish will take you on a journey that will uncover the truth and meaning behind Will's father's tall tales, all while Will tries to reconcile with his father Edward as he reaches the end of his life. The production is told in a brilliant manner that involves shifting timelines that show Edward in his youth as he goes on grand adventures that lead up to having his son Will and beyond. With musical numbers that will undoubtedly be stuck in your head for days after the show, this is a touching show that will leave you breathless and captivated throughout.

Breakthrough Performance

Nothing is perfect, and just as the initial tryout production of the Big Fish musical goes to show that many things don't even start out too great. With a bit of a stumble during the tryout that took place in Chicago, the creative team and audiences alike felt that there was something off about the beginning of the show, something that could be changed to be made better. Using their mastery and creativity, John August and Andrew Lippa quickly made some changes to the opening of the musical, including an all new song, that made critics and audiences alike fall in love with the production as a whole. So it was when the production was first moved to Broadway that audiences were treated to the exemplary display of musical mastery that was Big Fish.

Big Fish Trivia

With the same writer, John August, in charge of adapting the story to the stage, some might think that it was a simple matter of simply throwing in a few songs and changing a bit of the dialogue, but that is not the case at all. In fact, while August had worked on the screenplay for four years, it took over twice as long to have the production in it's final stages. While much of the story remains intact, there have been character changes and retains barely any of the original dialogue that was included in the screenplay and film. John August saw the promise of Big Fish being a musical as far back as when it was first being screened, as he approached the producers and pitched the idea right then and there. Bringing in the help of Andrew Lippa to help adapt the show, it still took a long nine years of working on adapting Big Fish for the stage until it was finally ready but it has already been praised as the next big thing in the musical community.

Fan Experience

People often go out for an afternoon or evening at the theatre as a great way to spend time, as a temporary escape to take them on adventures, or even a way to give imagination and creativity a bit of a kickstart, and when you head out to catch one of the upcoming shows of Big Fish you get all of that and more. A story steeped in tall tales and family, you'll happily follow the characters as they undergo intense changes and discover new things about life, family, and relationships. You may undergo a slew of emotions as you take part in this creative journey, but you'll come out of the theatre with a smile on your face and an imagination ready to run rampant! So if you love musicals, great stories, tall tales, or a brilliant combination of the three, then you owe it to yourself to check out this production that is bound to be a classic for years to come!
