The Palo Alto Players perform Big Fish, a dreamy and touching musical adventure adapted from both Tim Burton's celebrated film and the Daniel Wallace novel of the same name. It's the 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.

It's uncomfortable to watch a musical about Huck Finn, but TheaterWorks does this in a great way. Standouts are the voices behind Huck and Jim. Especially when the actor playing Jim sang, we could feel the emotion and beauty in his voice. I took my mom and she loved it, wishing it didn't end.
Hilarious and heartwarming, Mark Twain’s classic_ Huckleberry Finn_ sweeps down the mighty Mississippi, where runaways Huck and Jim discover a friendship that defies convention and defines the American dream. Propelled by an infectious, award-winning score and a dazzling array of unforgettable characters, their uproarious adventures chronicle the best and worst of our heritage in a joyously theatrical journey sure to delight the entire family.
