I've heard some Pretty Big fish stories in my day, but I was thoroughly impressed with the one told to me by Brandon and Aaron this morning on the Drive-In. The stage musical version of the 1998 book/2003 Tim Burton film Big Fish opens at the Quincy Community Theatre on March 16th, and runs for two weeks.

As QCT Artistic Director Brandon Thompson recaps, Big Fish is about a strained father-son relationship that sends the son out on a journey of self discovery and family discovery. It was the wonderfully beautiful and imaginative story, a delightful book and awe inspiring film, and we're lucky enough to see the stage adaptation hit our theatre for a local production.

I'm definitely excited to see what our theatre can do with this effects heavy story. And following last year's Sweeney Todd, I'm kinda looking forward to what other Tim Burton films we'll get to see as stage shows. Fingers crossed for Beetlejuice. OOOO! Or Batman Returns!
