Big Is Better
Catch a Broadway musical outdoors in the park.
Who didn’t love Tom Hanks in Big? Well, now you’ve got a chance to relive that family-friendly coming of age too soon story in person. Theatre Under the Stars’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre is presenting free performances of Big, The Musical at Miller Outdoor Theatre June 11 through 14. This 1996 Broadway musical that was nominated for four Tony Awards, combines the delightful tale of a 13-year-old boy who wishes to be big and wakes up to find he’s a child in a man’s body with a charming score. With music by David Shire, lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., book by John Weidman (based on the Hanks’ film) and choreography (including that classic dance on the giant piano keyboard scene) by Susan Stroman, Big, The Musical is a fun time for all. There are three daytime performances and two evening ones. With the kids out of school, grab a picnic basket and blanket and take the whole family out for the day at Hermann Park. Just remember, no glass containers at the park and if you bring a lawn chair, it goes on the left side so you don’t block the view of folks on blankets.
