About the show:

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.

Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

Please be prepared to read this monologue for the audition team, from any character in the show’s point of view.

I know about Ashton, dad.  I know what you did.  You saved a town and broke a girls heart.  I get why you didn’t want mom to know, I do, but what you did was heroic.

I made a list of all your stories.  There are thirty-six basic tales, with a lot of variations, of course.  Some are just jokes.  Awful jokes, mostly, but you take the rest and it’s like a myth.  The take of a farmer’s son from Ashton who wanted to travel the world.  You never did though.  I did, and I think that’s because of you. 

All this time I thought you were trying to impress me, you were trying to inspire me.
