Big Fish Comes to HU’s Biggest Stage

A whale of a tale is coming to Huntington University’s stage this week! Big Fish will open on November 18, with additional shows on November 18 and 19. 

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, Big Fish is an extraordinary Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.
