Broadway In Chicago, Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen are thrilled to announce that BIG FISH, a new musical based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 Columbia Pictures film written by John August, will star Norbert Leo Butz as Edward Bloom.

BIG FISH is directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, a book by John August, and is produced by Academy Award winners Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen.

A rollicking fantasy set in the American South, BIG FISH centers on the charismatic Edward Bloom, whose impossible stories of his epic adventures frustrate his son Will. As Edward’s final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to find out who his father really is, unraveling the man from the myth, the truth from the tall tales.

Overflowing with heart, humor and inventive stagecraft, BIG FISH is an inspirational tribute to the power of dreaming big… and the unpredictable adventure of life itself.

“Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions” by Daniel Wallace was first printed in 1998. In December 2003, a critically acclaimed film of Big Fish was released by Columbia Pictures directed by Tim Burton, starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lang and Helena Bonham Carter. The film was nominated for an Academy Award, Grammy Award, 4 Golden Globe Awards and 7 BAFTA Awards.
