Musical of 'Big Fish' lands a Broadway theatre; previews begin September

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The musical of "Big Fish" starring two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz has reeled in a Broadway theatre.

Producers said Monday that the new show will open in early October at the Neil Simon Theatre. Previews begin September 5 following a tune-up in Chicago this April and May.

Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the musical, based on the Daniel Wallace novel and the 2003 Tim Burton-directed film starring Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney. The musical's book will be by John August, who wrote the movie's screenplay.

Butz, last seen opposite Katie Homes on Broadway, will be joined by Kate Baldwin, Bobby Steggert, Krystal Joy Brown and Zachary Unger.
