Big Fish

Adapted from Daniel Wallace’s novel and Tim Burton’s acclaimed film, Big Fish is a fantastical musical that illustrates the larger-than-life anecdotes of Edward Bloom, a man nearing the end of his life. His son Will thus attempts unlock the secrets behind his father’s exaggerated tales in order to repair their strained relationship before it’s too late. 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 — filled with circus performers, giants, mermaids and witches — is a moving and entertaining tribute to the power of dreaming big.

No offense to the Palo Alto Players but I don't understand the appeal of this story. I didn't care for the movie even though it is a favorite for several of my friends. The same goes for the musical (which I expected might help me like it). I...continued
