Buffett will be sitting in the audience with fellow producer Frank Marshall, the Hollywood producer, according to a show representative, and then head backstage after the curtain.

"Big Fish" is the musical starring Norbert Leo Butz and Kate Baldwin, based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003  Tim Burton movie; it's in Chicago though May 5. Read the Tribune review here.
