BIG The Musical grants wishes for Make-A-Wish
In conjunction with press night and the show's official opening, BIG The Musical held a Gala to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a charity that helps grant wishes to children with critical illnesses. The non-profit organisation was chosen to reflect the plot of the musical, in which Josh Baskin wishes upon a Zoltar machine.
BIG is based on the original 1988 film of the same name, which starred Tom Hanks. The West End musical stars The Wanted's Jay McGuiness as Josh, who reprised the role from the Dublin, Ireland and Theatre Royal Plymouth runs.
The show features music by David Shire, lyrics by Richard Maltby, choreography, direction by Morgan Young, and a book by John Weidman.
