About The Show

The classic ’80s comedy is now a heartfelt musical fantasy. Josh Baskin is 12 years old. He wishes that his mom would stop hugging him in public, that he didn’t have to take out the garbage, and that Cynthia Benson, the girl next door, would notice him.

When she passes him over for an older boy, Josh makes a wish to be big—and wakes up the next morning in the body of a 30-year-old man! Driven from his home, Josh must navigate the unknown world of adults—jobs, girlfriends, and fancy foods—as he and his best friend seek out a way to undo the spell that caused him to grow.

Filled with Zoltar machines, floor pianos, and a dazzling, pop-filled score, Big, The Musical reminds us that there’s always room to be a child at heart, and that maturity comes in all sizes.
