This wickedly adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends fellow travelers that are also riding the giant piece of fruit across the ocean; facing hunger, sharks, and plenty of charming disagreements along the way. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.
Dahl’s themes of family and belonging ring as true here as ever helped along by the music of Tony Award® nominees Benji Pasek and Justin Paul (you may recall their acclaimed work in the films La La Land and The Greatest Showman). Their score in James and the Giant Peach will have you singing along in no time, perhaps even wishing that you could also set sail in a magic fruit.
