Coming Soon: "Big Fish"

   I'm a big fan of the fantastic and fanciful movie Big Fish, but I haven't had a chance to see the musical based on it - but that will change soon!

   That's because it'll be presented at the end of the month in Logan, courtesy of the Southern Coalition for the ARTS.

   They'll present the larger-than-life musical at the Coalfield Jamboree Theatre in downtown Logan, W.Va.

    The show will be presented: Friday, May 29 at 7 p.m., Saturday, May 30 at 7 p.m., Friday, June 5 at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 6 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 7 at 2 p.m.

   Tickets are $12 - you can order them during the day at 304-785-0547.

   So what is the show about? How's this: “A rollicking fantasy set in the American South, Big Fish centers on the charismatic Edward Bloom, whose impossible stories of his epic adventures frustrate his son Will. As Edward’s final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to find out who his father really is, revealing the man behind the myth, the truth from the tall tales.”

   The show is directed by Danny Ray and features an all-star cast. Don't miss it!
