Big

Big

, 2002


The 1987 hit movie bursts onstage 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's 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.

A witty, moving, insightful book by John Weidman ("Pacific Overtures," "Assassins") and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. ("Baby," "Starting Here, Starting Now," "Closer Than Ever") makes this already classic motion picture fantasy an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Fresh, up-to-date, relevant, and featuring one of the most irresistible leading male roles ever, "big, The Musical" holds universal appeal for audiences of all ages.
