The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto the stage in the unforgettable theatrical experience, Big The Musical. Featuring a witty, moving and insightful book by John Weidman (Assassins; Pacific Overtures; Road Show) and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. (Baby; Closer than Ever; Starting Here, Starting Now) Big is a perfect show for audiences of all ages!
Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become "big." To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do "adult" things, like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that there's much more to being an adult than he bargained for and learns that we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.
Complete with Zoltar, a giant floor piano and stand-out roles for adults and children, Big is a great choice for theatres that are looking for a family-friendly smash-hit that is full of high-energy singing and dancing.
