About the Show:

Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa, Book by John August

Based on the book Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions

-Premiered at the Neil Simon Theatre on September 5, 2013 and closed December 29, 2013.


Journalist Will Bloom and his French freelance photojournalist wife Josephine Bloom, pregnant with their first child, leave their Paris base to return to Will's hometown of Ashton, Alabama. His father, Edward Bloom, will soon be taken off chemotherapy treatment. Although connected indirectly through Will's mother, Sandra Bloom, Will has been estranged from his father for three years since his and Josephine's wedding. Will's issue with his father is the fanciful tales Edward has told of his life all his life. Edward was largely absent as a traveling salesman and Will believed those stories, but now realizes that he does not know his father, unless he comes clean with the truth before he dies. Will does not want to be the kind of father Edward has been to him. One of those stories from Edward's childhood led to him embracing life since he would not have to fear death knowing when and how it would eventually come. The question is whether Will will be able to reconcile Edward's stories against his real life, either directly from Edward before he dies and allow Will to come to a new understanding of himself and his life, past, present and future.
