TBig the Musical is suitable for children aged six and over.
The musical based on the 1988 film Big starring Tom Hanks, is heading to the West End for a nine week production. The story follows 12 year old Josh, who makes a wish at a carnival to be “big” and wakes up the next morning as a grown man.
Big the Musical was first performed in Broadway in 1996 and it features songs such as ‘When You’re Big’, ‘It’s Time’ and ‘Cross the Line.’ The adaptation starred Dabiel H Jenkins, and across its 193 performances, it was nominated for five Tony Awards!
Playing the lead role will be one of the fifth of The Wanted Jay McGuiness. Since leaving the band, he has won BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, featured in the sixties show Rip It Up and he played the role adult Josh in the UK tour of Big the Musical back in 2016.
The musical is set to run at the Dominion Theatre from 6th September to the 2nd November.
