Synopsis

A frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were  “big" and wakes up the next morning a 30 year-old man. He discovers there's much more to being an adult than he had bargained for, and learns that we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.

Trivia & History

The show underwent heavy revisions after it flopped in New York.  With most of the songs in the first act being entirely replaced by songs that had been cut prior to the original production begining rehearsals.  The revised version was highly successful, and discussion of bringing the show back into New York happened, but it was ultimately decided against.
