Adapted from both Tim Burton's celebrated film and the Daniel Wallace novel of the same name, Musical Theatre West reels in the West Coast premiere of the musical Big Fish, 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. With music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family) and a book by acclaimed screenwriter John August (Go, Charlie's Angels), this rollicking fantasy set in the American South is a tribute to the power of dreaming big.

The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred

A rare opportunity to see a tremendous show that is performed only infrequently (this was the West Coast premiere!), with an accomplished cast. The fact that it was free was an added bonus - I would have paid big money to see this one!

Musical Theatre West is delighted to present Musical Theatre Guild’s production, offering Los Angeles its first look at Ahrens & Flaherty’s recent gem about the journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Based on the Albert Finny film, this musical version premiered at Lincoln Center in 2002. It tells the heartwarming story of Alfie, a Dublin bus conductor and director of the local community theatre. Alfie’s passengers are also his performers and, through his eyes, come to experience the power that theatre has to transform their lives.
