Does anyone know why the song list for Big: The Musical does not include all of the songs from the original Broadway production? It seems like some of the best songs in the show were cut from the liscensed version.

Scott, As James mentions, there was a very successful tour version presented after the Broadway run! It was mostly revamped and the writers chose to stick with the newer version. This actually isn't uncommon - the only difference is that the "Big" overhaul was on a much larger scale. It's a great show with a fun score. Best of luck on your production! Remember to request the licensing at www.mtishows.com

The version licensed by MTI is actually based on the successful tour version. A CD that includes the tour version songs is available from MTI.
