When Tom Hanks played that extra large floor piano in the motion picture BIG, it was a moment that movie goers still remember.  Audiences can relieve that moment at Carmel’s outdoor Forest Theater June 29 through July 9 in The Forest Theater Guild production,  BIG The Musical.
 
Directed by Walt deFaria and Gracie Poletti, the story centers around 13 year old Josh who puts a coin in a Carnival machine and gets his wish to be BIG.   The adventures that follow this little boy in a man’s  body are the perfect example of why we should be careful what we wish for. John Weidman, wrote the book, David Shire the music and Richard Maltby, Jr. the lyrics.
