Giant Poster


Closed December 2, 2012

A new American musical that spans generations in an epic chronicle of the state that's like no place else on earth: Texas

Why See Giant?

Amid a turbulent culture of greed, bigotry and money, a powerful cattleman, his new East Coast bride, their family and friends – not to mention their enemies – embrace and confront the joys and sorrows that loom as large as the state they call home.

With a book by Sybille Pearson (the Tony-nominated author of Baby), music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa (the five-time Tony-nominated composer of The Wild Party and Hello Again) and direction by Michael Greif (the three-time Tony-nominated director of Rent and The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide...), Giant will come to life in an appropriately huge production with a company of 22 actors and a 17-piece orchestra.
