Exclusive Photo Coverage: 50 USO Members Attend BIG FISH!
Broadway's new musical Big Fish will play its final performance on Sunday, December 29, 2013. This is your last chance to see two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Catch Me If You Can), Tony Award nominee Kate Baldwin (Giant, Finian's Rainbow) and Bobby Steggert (Giant, Ragtime) onstage at the Neil Simon Theatre (250 West 52nd Street). 50 uniformed members of the USO attended the show earlier this week and you can check out photos of them with the cast below!
BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman with a huge heart, enormous spirit and an extraordinary vision of the world. 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, must make his way through the smokescreen of his father's improbable stories to unravel the mystery of who his father truly is. Big Fish is about dreaming, loving and living bigger.
BIG FISH is based on the 1998 novel "Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions" by Daniel Wallace, and the 2003 critically acclaimed film from Columbia Pictures written by John August and directed byTim Burton. The film and its soundtrack were nominated for an Academy Award, Grammy Award, 4 Golden Globe Awards and 7 BAFTA Awards. Big Fish had its pre-Broadway world premiere at Chicago's Oriental Theatre in a critically-lauded 5-week engagement in April of 2013.
