Today, we officially announced more dates and details for the Big Fish musical.

For Broadway, Big Fish will begin performances September 5 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Opening night is set for October 6.

As previously announced, we’re starting off with a five-week run in Chicago’s Oriental Theatre beginning April 2, with an official opening night on April 19. Individual tickets go on sale February 4th.

We also announced almost all of our cast today. Norbert Leo Butz, Kate Baldwin and Bobby Steggert play the central Bloom family, with a phenomenal group of actors surrounding them. I’m ridiculously happy with who we got, and everything they can bring to the show.

Obvious caveats: Long roads, many surprises and whatnot. As I said last week, writing a musical is a migration, not a sprint or a marathon. But I’m very excited for our next two stops on the trek.
