I never saw the original movie nor did I know the story of Big Fish prior to reading a synopsis of the musical. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it made me wish that I could have had my 7 children with me in the audience to experience this fantastic musical story. I was blown away by the entire process. Even though not all of the actors had great voices, it was definitely easy to understand the lyrics as they sang. I was unashamedly driven to tears at the death scene and definitely learned something new about the human condition. It would have been great for my 4 sons to have seen this musical as well as my 3 daughters. It would have cast a new light on our relationships for the rest of our lives. The production values were great and the acting was superb. I would highly recommend this musical to anyone....no restrictions! Go see it.
