Big heads to the West End

The musical adaptation of Big will open in London’s West End this September.

The show, which originally premiered in the UK at Theatre Royal Plymouth, is set for a six week run at the Dominion Theatre from September 6th.

Jay McGuinness, who starred in the Plymouth production, will again play the grown-up Josh Baskin.

The show is based on the 1988 film which starred Tom Hanks as a boy who makes a wish to be “big” and wakes up an adult.

The musical premiered on Broadway in 1996 with music by David Shire, lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr, and a book by John Weidman.
