Big Fish

A New Broadway Musical

April 29 - May 14, 2016

Big FishTheatre Harrisburg presents BIG FISH: a new Broadway musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, The Wild Party) based on the book by esteemed screenwriter John August.

BIG FISH centers on 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.

Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that's richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

"SPECTACULAR. BIG FISH has BIG talents, a BIG cast, a BIG orchestra, BIG production numbers and really BIG special effects..."  - The New York Times
