2015-2016 Season

BIG FISH |  May 6 - May 22

A rollicking fantasy set in the American South, Big Fish centers on the charismatic Edward Bloom, whose impossible stories of his epic adventures frustrate his son Will. As Edward's final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to find out who his father really was, revealing the man behind the myth, the truth from the tall tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, Big Fish is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre--for an experience that's richer, funnier, and bigger than life itself.
