Big, the Musical

Berkeley Playhouse

Josh Baskin is 12 years old. He wishes that his mom would stop hugging him in public, that he didn't have to take out the garbage, and that Cynthia Benson, the girl next door, would notice him. When she passes him over for an older boy, Josh makes a wish to be big--and wakes up the next morning in the body of a 30-year-old man! Driven from his home, Josh must navigate the unknown world of adults--jobs, girlfriends, and fancy foods--as he and his best friend seek out a way to undo the spell that caused him to grow.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jack Hirsch has to say about Big, the Musical :

This performance, based on the Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg film, has transformed the classic 80s comedy into a musical fantasy. When the girl next door passes over Josh for an older boy, he wishes to be big—and wakes up as a 30-year-old man. Join Josh on his journey to undo the spell as he learns that there’s always room to be a child at heart.
