No, not Allied...

Not since we saw Once have we been so blown away by a new musical on Broadway as we were when we saw Big Fish on Sunday night.
We never saw the movie or read the book, so we went into the show with low expectations. And we were blown away!
While not an obvious choice for a Broadway musical, Big Fish translates beautifully to the stage!
Susan Stroman does an EPIC job of directing the show and also spending every single penny the producers put into the production! This is not just a Big show, but it's also a BIG show!
So much razzle dazzle!!!!
But, what struck us the most were the stunning songs by Andrew Lippa! They were inspired and inspiring! INSTANTLY MEMORABLE! Moving! Varied! From big to intimate - and not a single bad song in the show!
The cast has some of the finest talents working on the stage right now - Norbert Leo Butz, Kate Baldwin and our future boyfriend, Bobby Steggert. And the entire production team deserves a tremendous round of applause!
There was so much inventiveness on that stage! From the set design to the costumes and everything in between!
Our senses were dazzled in the first act and our heartstrings were razzled in the second act! We cried so much! We were so moved!
This. Show. WINS!
Must. Must. See!!!!!
