Lure of Broadway: Backstage at BIG FISH
October 4, 2013 – VanityFair.com

The backstory of Big Fish is nearly as far-fetched as the preposterous yarns spun by its Alabama-based traveling-salesman hero. Undeterred by the rejection of his first four novels, Daniel Wallace, a bookstore clerk (and collector of glass eyeballs), finally hits the big time in 1998, with a short work of fiction dashed off in his laundry room. Next, Wallace’s book becomes a lavish 2003 Tim Burton cult film, starring Albert Finney, and then, 10 years later, the best-seller morphs into a big-budget Broadway musical, featuring a formidable lineup of Tony-winning talents: director and choreographer Susan Stroman, leading man Norbert Leo Butz, and costume designer William Ivey Long.
