The Washington Post on ‘Big Fish’: The magical movie spawned a musical that’s coming to D.C.

When Tim Burton’s “Big Fish” was released, songwriter Andrew Lippa was so moved by the movie that he immediately wanted to turn it into a musical. Ten years later, in 2013, his wish came true when the show he wrote with the original screenwriter, John August, opened on Broadway. After a modestly successful run there, the musical has enjoyed a second life in regional theaters, and it will finally have its D.C. premiere when it opens Saturday at the Keegan Theatre.

Keegan Presents OUTSIDE MULLINGAR

The Keegan Theatre presents John Patrick Shanley’s OUTSIDE MULLINGAR, opening on May 6, 2017, in Washington, DC. The production is directed by Keegan Producing Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea and runs through May 28, 2017.

“OUTSIDE MULLINGAR is quintessential Keegan,” says Rhea. “It covers subtle, gorgeous terrain within the human heart – and so sharply represents the rural communities and relationships of Ireland. The language is simple and deeply poetic at the same time, and the heartache, joy, and humor that Shanley captures in this intimate story is an incredible accomplishment. We can’t wait to share it with our audiences.”

The Washington Post: HAMLETTE

Keegan Theatre has always done plays for adults, often showcasing Irish writers and themes. Now it’s launching a youth program whose three-part title, PLAY-RAH-KA, also has Gaelic roots: (a) revelry, (b) boisterous merrymaking and (c) a party you don’t want to miss. Besides classes and camps, Keegan will stage professional shows for young audiences.

DC Metro Theater Arts: HAMLETTE

Hamlette is a family-friendly take on what has become one of the most frequently interpreted plays by the Bard. It has a little something for everyone, giving us an idea of the characters as they were originally imagined while connecting the stories to the present day.
