The musical stars Kelsey Grammer as the central character Edward Bloom, who reflects on his life and times as a seafarer. The show is Grammer's first appearance on a London stage.
Directed by actor and director Nigel Harman, the musical is an adaptation of Daniel Wallace's best selling 1998 novel, which was turned into an Oscar-nominated film in 2003. There are music and lyrics by John August and Andrew Lippa.
Grammer is best-known for playing Dr Frasier Crane in the award-winning sitcoms Cheers and Frasier. In 2010 Grammer made his Broadway musical debut playing the lead role of Georges in La Cage Aux Folles, for which he won a Tony Award nomination.
Clare Burt will play Bloom's wife Sandra, and the remainder of the cast is composed of Matt Seadon-Young, Frances McNamee, Forbes Masson, Jamie Muscato, Laura Baldwin, Landi Oshinowo, Dean Nolan, and George Ure, Sophie Linder-Lee, Gemma McMeel and Jonathan Stewart.
Big Fish runs from 7 November to 31 December at The Other Palace.
