by Joseph Harrison - Apr 25, 2021

Stories have an amazing way of bringing to life experiences and concepts that otherwise might be too complex, too unfamiliar, or too uninteresting. And, while some might write off storytelling as something reserved only for childhood, it is, in fact, one of the most common ways we humans have passed along the oral histories of our lives for generations. So, if given the ability to tell the stories of your own life ‚Äď would you be the hero? What about when others hear and interpret it? This is the case for Edward Bloom, the larger than life ‚Äúhero‚ÄĚ of the story of BIG FISH ‚Äď now onstage (and streaming) at the Titusville Playhouse in Titusville, Florida.
