92Y presents an evening with the creative team behind the new Broadway musical Big Fish, on Sunday, November 24 at 7:30 pm. John August (screenwriter and book of the musical); Kate Baldwin (lead actress); Bruce Cohen (film and Broadway producer); Dan Jinks (film and Broadway producer); Andrew Lippa (music and lyrics); Bobby Steggert (lead actor); Susan Stroman (Broadway director and choreographer) and Daniel Wallace (novelist) discuss the production’s journey from novel to film to stage, with performances from the Broadway musical Big Fish by Baldwin and Steggert.
A bestselling book, an Oscar- and Golden Globe-nominated motion picture and now a star-studded Broadway musical, Big Fish is a phenomenon growing to mythic proportions. Author Daniel Wallace notes, “No sane writer would ever dream that a little novel written in his basement laundry room, camel crickets attacking from all sides, would ever inspire a movie, or (really?) a musical; my only dream was to see it in the world as a book. That’s why that everything that’s happened to it since has seemed so fantastic and surreal.”
”In all its forms, Big Fish is a tale that speaks to people on a personal and intimate level,” said film and Broadway producer Dan Jinks. Big Fish celebrates transformative power stories can have to inspire us to reconnect and reconcile with those we love so that we can live our best life.”Buy tickets/get more info now
