BIG FISH - Best of 2016!
Co-production by Four Seasons & Theatre LILA
I caught “Big Fish” in Chicago in 2013, the spring before it transferred to Broadway. This collaborative production on the Playhouse stage at Overture was so different and, I have to say, so much better. With fewer (and different) songs, a tight ensemble cast and moving performances from Scott Haden, Clare Arena Haden and Stephen Scott Wormley, this production of “Big Fish” celebrated the joy of storytelling — and subtly asked for patience and compassion with family members we don’t understand.
With full houses over two weekends and packed school matinees, BIG FISH was seen by over 3,000 members of the Madison community. Learn more.
