In whatever incarnation you can imagine, Daniel Wallace’s Big Fish has enchanted the minds of many with its storyline of a young man uncovering the fantastical experiences and myths of his father’s life that his father told. In this musical version written by John August, Andrew Lippa’s music and lyrics bring Wallace’s story alive in a new way, in a production directed at Chance Theater by Oanh Nguyen and choreographed by Kelly Todd. Whether you read the original book by Wallace or saw the exceptional Tim Burton adaptation, feel enchanted all over again with this musical adaptation; or, experience it brand new and let its larger than life narrative lift you up.
