BIG FISH centers on the charismatic 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 – most of all, his devoted
wife Sandra. But their son, Will, about to have
a child of his own, is determined to find the
truth behind his father's epic tales and the
man behind the myth as Edward approaches the
final chapter of his life. Overflowing with
heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, we
look forward to bringing you an extraordinary
new musical direct from Broadway that reminds
us why we love going to the theatre – for an
experience that's richer, funnier and BIGGER
than life itself.
