ABOUT THE SHOW
This is the first regional production of the show since it closed on Broadway and it's being presented by the outstanding Musical Theatre West in Long Beach, CA.
“MTW is the (first) theater to produce ‘ BIG FISH ’ since it closed on Broadway. It’s a story that will touch your heart and tickle your funny bone,” said Paul Garman , executive director of Musical Theatre West. “This will be its only Southern California appearance, so you won’t want to miss it.”
In addition to being the first West Coast performance, the Long Beach show will feature the original Broadway set and costumes. And adding even more clout to the show, both its stars — Jeff Skowron as Edward Bloom and Rebecca Johnson as Sandra Bloom — are nominees for the 2014 Ovation Awards by LA STAGE Alliance.
“Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton , BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom ( Jeff Skowron ), a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some!
Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra ( Rebecca Johnson ). But their son Will ( Andrew Huber ), about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales”.
