Big: The Musical
‘80s film Big gets a musical makeover as it jumps into the West End this September. BIG the Musical may not star Tom Hanks, but The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness gives his all as Josh Baskin, a 12-year-old boy who’s fed up with being small. After a visit to the carnival and a mysteriously granted wish, Josh finds himself thrust into adulthood and all the mayhem it entails. With catchy new songs by David Shire and Richard Maltby and a hugely heartfelt tale at its centre, BIG the Musical is the perfect nostalgic treat to close out the Summer. It opens at the Dominion Theatre on 6 September.
Florian Zeller's The Son begins a highly anticipated West End run this August after totting up rave reviews at Kiln Theatre. Following troubled teenager Nicholas as he resists help from those close to him and struggles with family upheavals, the play is a sublime study of adolescent depression. Zeller previously enjoyed knock-out success with The Height of the Storm at the Wyndham's Theatre, and The Son seems destined to follow suit. With an incredible cast including Sherlock alumnus Amanda Abbington set to reprise their roles, this emotional gut-punch of a play is a must-see at the Duke of York's Theatre.
