All aboard for this saucy and splendid production of Roundabout Theatre Company's Anything Goes, winner of three 2011 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival and Choreography. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love – proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise, and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
Running Time: TBA
Big Fish is a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton. Big Fish centers on the charismatic Edward Bloom, whose impossible stories of his epic adventures frustrate his son Will. As Edward's final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to find out who his father really is, unraveling the man from the myth, the truth from the tall tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and imagination, Big Fish is a tribute to the power of dreaming big and the unpredictable adventure of life itself.
