Why You Should Watch Big The Musical
The show is a genuinely funny and entertaining treat that showcases John Weidman’s book and a breathtakingly beautiful score by David Shire and Richard Maltby Jr. You will be taken on a joyful ride through the engaging story of Josh Baskin. It has finally been established that the popular Jay McGuiness will be taking up his old role as the protagonist in Big The Musical, which was previously played by the phenomenal Tom Hanks. He is well known for successful work with The Wanted, a boy-band that created hit numbers like ‘All Time Low’ and Glad You Came’. This Irish production is a treat for the entire family.
Big The Musical is based on the legendary film of the same name, starring Tom Hanks. It is light-hearted and wholesome and follows the story of Josh Baskin, a twelve-year-old boy. As a kid, he finds his life to be somewhat drab and colorless. One night, when he’s at the carnival, he throws a coin into a machine that is supposed to tell his fortune, and he wishes to be ‘big’. He is very startled when he sees that the machine was unplugged all along but still speaks to him, saying that his wish is granted. He goes home and sleeps, thoroughly disturbed, and wakes up the next day as a man in his thirties! He now needs to do all the things that grown-ups do such as working and finding a girlfriend. Join Josh on his crazy journey as he discovers the meaning of responsibility and the value of childhood.
