The folio features music and lyrics to 13 songs: "Be the Hero," "Daffodils," "Fight the Dragons," "How It Ends," "I Don't Need a Roof," "Out There on the Road," "A Story of My Own," "Stranger," "This River Between Us," "Time Stops," "Two Men in My Life," "What's Next" and "The Witch."
Big Fish has music and lyrics by Grammy and Tony nominee Lippa with a book by Grammy and BAFTA Award nominee John August. The musical, which played a short-lived Broadway run last season, is based on the 1998 novel by Daniel Wallace and the subsequent 2003 film by August.
Big Fish, according to press notes, "centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Big Fish is about dreaming, loving and living bigger."
