A mermaid, a witch, a giant. Dancing elephants and a human cannonball. The stuff of fantasy tales. A traveling salesman from a small town in Alabama who tells his son crazy stories. The son who doesn’t know what’s real or not. Romance and family. Costumes ranging from a circus to the Wild West and a Broadway song and dance pageant like no other.
Big Fish http://www.bigfishthemusical.com/?gclid=CJ6m0vDx5rkCFROk4AodPG8Akw opens on Broadway Oct. 6; we saw it last night in previews.
For all those who believe that stories fuel the imagination and inspire us to “Dream Bigger,” this is the show. Stories make us human; they give us a history.
