DCist: BIG FISH

The show is a winning testament to the impact one man from a tiny town can have on the people who loved him—or even just crossed paths with him for a moment. Even as his son Will (Ricky Drummond, appealing and appropriately stodgy) grows increasingly frustrated with his father’s seemingly tall tales and unwilling tendency to play anything but the hero, the audience gets swept up in Bloom’s impossibly epic version of his own story.

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.

The Washington Post: WORKING – A Musical

Could there be a better moment to do “Working,” an audience-friendly revue of songs and monologues based on Studs Terkel’s 1974 book of interviews with American working folk?

The Washington Examiner: WORKING – A Musical

When radio legend and oral historian Studs Terkel wrote the book “Working” in 1974, based on interviews he did with Americans of all social strata, it was hailed as a groundbreaking achievement, since it did what no popular study had done before. It celebrated America’s workers.
