What is Big the Musical London all about?

Josh is tired of being an awkward kid whose life is somewhat colourless. One night at a carnival, he inserts a coin into a machine that supposedly tells people their fortune. An upset Baskin wishes to be “big”. He is taken by surprise when he discovers that the fortune-teller was unplugged all the while but still spoke to him, telling him that his wish has come true. A startled Josh heads back home and goes to sleep, still disturbed.

When Josh wakes up the next day, he finds that he is all grown up to be somewhere near his thirties! His mother drives him away from the house, thinking of him as an intruder. The only person who understands his situation is his best friend Billy who tries to help him locate a Zoltar Speaks machine and return him to normal. After an awkward start, he has adult problems to deal with, such as finding a job and also a girlfriend.

During the play, enjoy yourself as you see a recently grown adult try to manage a thoroughly wild life. By the end of the show, you will see what makes Big The Musical London such a smash hit. So, what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now!
