Broadway fans, here’s a Monday morning treat. Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Catch Me If You Can) and Kate Baldwin (Giant, Finian’s Rainbow) are set to star in a musical version of Big Fish, and you can listen to a new song from the show, “Time Stops,” exclusively on EW.
The new musical, which will premiere in Chicago on April 2 and officially opens on Broadway in October, is based on the 2003 award-winning movie. The book for the musical was written by John August, who was also the screenwriter for the film. Big Fish will be directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, The Scottsboro Boys), with music and lyrics by Grammy- and Tony-Award nominee Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, The Addams Family).
Listen to “Time Stops” below:
Update: The Big Fish musical recently released another song, “Fight the Dragons.”
Big Fish begins previews on Broadway Sept. 5 and officially opens Oct. 6.
