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. With this exclusive pre-sale offer, get access to prime seats before they go on sale to the general public. Learn More
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

Radio, music, and World War II were deeply interwoven into the fabric of America’s tapestry from 1941-45. The console radio was the sole source of immediate information while big band remotes turned living rooms into make-believe-ballrooms with streamlined imagery of skyscrapers and nightclubs.
Honoring America’s greatest generation, Five by Design recreates a poignant time capsule of American life during the war years. As “Sentimental Journey” opens the production, the audience is transported to a seemingly simpler time when an evening’s entertainment emanated from the amber glow of vacuum tubes in a wooden cabinet. Five by Design’s Radio Days is an affectionate look at the children’s programming, soap operas, game shows, adventure serials, commercials, and the songs that were etched in the nation’s psyche.
Combining musical selections with celebrity appearances from big band leader Kay Kyser, Betty Grable, and the diva of the tutti-frutti hat, Carmen Miranda, Five by Design has meticulously crafted a musical retrospective from radio’s golden age. The show reaches its climax as a soldier and his bride embrace for a farewell dance to “I’ll Be Seeing You.” So climb aboard the “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” as Five by Design’s RADIO DAYS takes its audiences on a ride over the radio airwaves.
