“Wonderful Story & Good Songs, “Big Fish” Is A Simple But Fun Show!”
THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi
The Kentwood Players at the Westchester Playhouse in Los Angeles present “Big Fish” – which is a musical with the music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and the book written by John August. It is originally based on Daniel Wallace's 1998 novel which later became ‘Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions' – which then evolved into the 2003 film “Big Fish” with the screenplay written by John August and popularly directed by the master of unusual himself, Tim Burton.
The play is produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete for the Kentwood Players and is directed by Catherine Rahm with choreography by Alison Mattiza – the production is a little slow in pace overall and some the casting choices seem a little odd based on who they are supposed to represent, but the warmth and humanity still forces its way through.
