After a little over a month after its opening on Broadway, it was announced that Big Fish will close December 29. By then, it will have played 34 previews and just under 100 shows (98) at Neil Simon Theatre.
The show was based off of a 1998 novel written by Daniel Wallace called "Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions." In 2003, the novel was turned into a movie starring Ewan McGregor, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lang, Helena Bonham Carter, and Albert Finney. Directed by Tim Burton, this rendition was the likely inspiration behind the Broadway production, which was set in Alabama and followed Edward Bloom, a man of many stories.
Big Fish has a successful run in Chicago prior to its Broadway debut. The show is directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, with a book by John August, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Academy Award winners Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks produce the show.
Alanis Morissette's 1995 album, Jagged Little Pill, might just be heading to Broadway. Morissette and Tom Kitt (a Pulitzer Prize winner who has previously worked on Broadway shows like If/Then) are said to be collaborating on a musical that will be inspired by the iconic '90s album.
If all goes well, a workshop production of the musical will debut in New York come 2014. It would include the entire album's tracklist, as well as songs from other Morrisette albums and some new songs she'll compose specifically for the production.
Friendly reminder: Angsty "You Oughta Know" — Morisette's first single off of Jagged Little Pill — is rumored to have been written about Dave Coulier, who played Joey Gladstone on "Full House."
