BIG FISH Original Broadway Cast Recording Now Available On iTunes

BIG FISH Original Broadway Cast Recording Now Available On iTunesThe original Broadway cast recording of the short-lived recent screen-to-stage adaptation of Tim Burton's beloved film BIG FISH, starring two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz, is now available on iTunes.

The official description of the original Broadway cast recording of BIG FISH is as follows: "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 by Tim 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. Directed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (Contact, The Producers, The Scottsboro Boys), with music and lyrics by Grammy and Tony Award nominee Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, The Addams Family), and a book by Grammy and BAFTA Award nominee John August (Frankenweenie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), BIG FISH stars two-time Tony Award® winner Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Catch Me If You Can) as Edward Bloom, Tony Award® nominee Kate Baldwin (Giant, Finian's Rainbow) as Sandra Bloom, Tony Award® nominee Bobby Steggert (Giant, Ragtime) as Will Bloom, Krystal Joy Brown (Leap Of Faith) as Josephine Bloom, Anthony Pierini (Mary Poppins) and Zachary Unger (Chaplin) alternating as Young Will, Ryan Andes as Karl, Ben Crawford as Don Price, and Tony Award® nominee Brad Oscar as Amos Calloway.
