Big Fish

Book by John August; Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

Directed by Jacob Berggren

Based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the Columbia Motion Picture written by John August. Giants...witches...mermaids...a circus...a field of daffodils...all play a part in the incredible, larger-than-life tales and adventures that Edward Bloom tells his son, Will, who is expecting his first child. When Edward's health deteriorates, Will visits his father and tries one last time to find out the truth about his father and to unleash the secrets his father taught him.

A heartfelt and powerful musical about the struggles of a father and son to understand each other.
