A father’s story. A son’s journey. Life’s epic adventure.
Edward Bloom never wanted an ordinary life, so he learned to inspire his imagination. His incredible stories thrill everyone around him—except his son Will, who insists on separating fact from fiction. As Edward’s final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to find out who his father really is, slowly uncovering the man behind the myth and the nugget of truth in each tall tale.
Four Seasons Theatre and Theatre LILA join forces to spin you a magical tale about a family coming together—and the beauty of dreaming bigger. Based on the 1998 novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 film directed by Tim Burton, the 12 Chairs version of Big Fish brings to life the fantastic world of Edward Bloom’s imagination in the intimate space of the Overture Center’s Playhouse.
