The European premiere of BIG The Musical took place this week and some of our favourite famous faces were out in force for the, ahem, big night. Leading an all-star cast, Jay McGuiness (The Wanted singer and Strictly Come Dancing champion) is joined by a full Dublin ensemble of shining local theatre stars and West End stars Jessica Martin, Diana Vickers and Gary Wilmot with The Hoosiers star Irwin Sparkes.
Irish audiences will be the first to have the opportunity to witness this spectacular musical before it opens in London’s West End next year and is sure to entice and enchant this festive season.
BIG, the heart-warming and hilarious Broadway musical based on the classic movie starring Tom Hanks, tells the story of Josh Baskin, a twelve-year-old boy who hates being little, until one night at the carnival the mysterious Zoltar machine grants his wish to be big. Trapped in an adult’s body and alone in New York, he innocently tries to find his way around a grown-up world where it’s all work and no play. But whilst everyone around him tries to act their age, Josh just can’t help being himself. Maybe he can teach the real adults a thing or two…
Big runs from December 8th through January 7th and tickets are priced from €15.
