An emotionally complex story, grounded acting, and insane stage wizardry add up to an enjoyable musical adaptation of the 2003 film.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Based the novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 film starring Ewan McGregor, Big Fish is a modern fable centering on charmer Edward Bloom (Norbert Leo Butz), whose stories of epic and largely unbelievable adventures irritate his by-the-books son Will (Bobby Steggert). As Edward approaches the final chapter in his own story, Will sets out to sleuth whether his father is an average man with tall tales or an unbelievable hero of truth.
