From the company that brought Chicago the hits The Wiz and Heathers, Little Fish is a fast-paced, hilariously wry, and strikingly heartfelt musical about rebuilding.

In the Chicago premiere of Michael John LaChiusa’s Little Fish, thirty-something writer Charlotte decides to give up smoking and tries to compensate with swimming and jogging – but to no avail. With the help of her friends Kathy and Marco, she embarks on a modern-day odyssey to face the eclectic demons of her past. Loosely based on Deborah Eisenberg’s short stories Days and Flotsam, Little Fish’s score is infused with Latin, jazz, rock, and what’s been described as "pure urban noise within Charlotte's mind."

"What I love the most about this musical is that it has these huge ideas attached to it – isolation versus connection… addiction… trauma… but they exist within a bright, fast-paced, hilariously wry musical comedy,” comments Director Allison Hendrix. “We see three friends in the midst of their ‘Saturn Returns,’ figuring out how to be better people, better friends and ultimately, better citizens of the world. These characters' journeys will feel familiar and close to home to our audiences."
