big: The Musical

By Shire/Maltby

Directed by Gerry Staggenborg

The 1987 hit movie (starring Tom Hanks) busts onto the stage 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 is 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. This classic motion picture fantasy is already an unforgettable theatrical experience.
