Taproot Theatre’s musical “Big Fish” opens with previews tonight

Taproot Theatre’s newest production is an adaptation of the musical “Big Fish” playing tonight (Wednesday) through Aug. 13, at 204 N. 85th St.

Every man wants to be a hero to his own son. Edward’s never been much of a dad, but as fantasy wages war with reality his tall tales of mermaids and giants may make his son a better man. Let yourself be reeled in by this adventurous and romantic musical based on the beloved novel and award-winning film.
