Make a date to share BIG: The Musical with your family this week! The Music Theatre of Louisville hits it out of the park with this winning production.
The 1987 hit movie featuring Tom Hanks bursts onstage in this vibrant, funny and touching musical. When frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were “big” and wakes up the next morning a 30-year-old man, he discovers there’s much more to being an adult than he’s bargained for-and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. A witty, moving, insightful book and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score make this already classic motion picture fantasy an unforgettable theatrical experience. ”Big’ is satisfyingly good. The music of David Shire, the lyrics of Richard Maltby Jr., the book by Jerome Weidman and the choreography by Susan Stroman extol all the values of the grand tradition of musicals. The characters are very dear and complex. It is hard to sit still when the dances take over.” (NY Times, 2000)
Directed by Andrew D. Harris and Choreographed by Megan Bliss.
