Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

The Umbrella's Take: I absolutely fell in love with Big Fish when I saw it on Broadway in 2013 and I am thrilled to bring it here to The Umbrella. It aims at the heart of musical theatre as an art form, and is a true storytelling piece of the grandest proportions. Based on the book and film by the same name, Big Fish challenges the line between imagination and reality and is sure to deliver stunning production designs, enchanting music, and a tale that tugs at the heart strings.
