Edward Bloom has lived a full and fantastical life, filled with witches, giants and mermaids, marked by true love that stops time in its tracks and framed by heroics that push the limits of believability. His adult son, Will, is no longer amused by his father’s fantastical tales, insisting on a rational rather than a fantastical account of his father’s life. When Edward’s health declines, and Will learns that he and his wife, Josephine, will have a son of their own, Will decides to find his father’s “true” life story, once and for all. Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful and truly magical musical about fathers, sons and the stories that we use to define our identities. It is a magnificent “big fish” of a tale– spectacular, fantastical and overflowing with love.
