Adapted from both Tim Burton's celebrated film and the Daniel Wallace novel of the same name, the musical Big Fish is the dreamy, touching story of a tall-tale-teller and his son, who wants to know who his father really is. Following a lifetime of spinning made-up yarns of epic adventures, Edward Bloom has entered his final chapter, compelling his son Will to embark on an adventure of his own -- to unravel his real dad from the myths he has created.
