BIG, The Musical

By John Weidman, David Shire, Richard Maltby

Directed by Tim Olmstead

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?d bargained for and learns we must all grow up at our own pace and in our own time. As the chief product manager for a major toy company Josh grows up all too fast with hilarious consequences for all concerned. This is a vibrant, funny, and touching musical.
