Norbert Leo Butz Sings New BIG FISH Song

Two-time Tony Award-winner Norbert Leo Butz, the best actor on Broadway and one of my favorite actors ever, is in the new musical adaptation of Big Fish, based on the movie of the same title. As his first return to the Broadway musical stage in two years, the show finally opened this past Sunday (October 6). Back in March, I posted an audio of him singing one of the iconic songs, "Fight the Dragons" in which the character (Edward Bloom) gives a glimpse into his adventures.

As part of The New York Times's "In Performance" series, Norbert sings "Fight the Dragons" in the simplistic video below. Click the picture below to check it out!


It opened to what seemed like ambivalent reviews, saying that it is a fun show with a great spectacle. Most of the reviewers pointed out how wholesome it is and the fact that family-oriented Broadway musicals are rare these days. Of course they all loved Norbert. Check out the full reviews here!

With music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family), and book by John August, Susan Stroman directs/choreographs this fantasy-driven musical and (fittingly, I think) William Ivey Long designed the costumes fresh off of his Tony Award for Cinderella.
