CHICAGO (AP) — A musical production of "Big Fish" starring two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz will have a five-week pre-Broadway run in Chicago next spring.
Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the musical, based on the Daniel Wallace novel and the 2003 Tim Burton-directed film starring Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney. The musical's book will be by John August, who wrote the movie's screenplay. Producers are Academy Award winners Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen.
