Check Out "Big: The Musical" in Bryan, Texas
In 1988, actor Tom Hanks took on the role of a young boy who makes a wish to be big. In the movie, Hanks' character goes to bed after attending a carnival and wakes up to find himself no longer that awkward pre-teen from the night before, but a grown 30-year-old man. The film hosts several memorable moments, with the most iconic being the infamous scene of Hanks' character playing the Chopsticks tune on a giant floor piano. Ultimately, the story follows the journey of this character discovering the truth of the old adage, "the grass is always greener on the other side."
