Overview

Book by Jim Brochu, Music and Lyrics by Steve Schalchlin

In THE BIG VOICE, Jim and Steve have musicalized their long term relationship and hilariously proved that theatre is as much a calling as the religion. This high energy, razzle-dazzle show chronicles the lives of a Baptist from Arkansas and a Catholic from Brooklyn who find eternal salvation in the temple of musical theatre. The show "traces the couple's meeting aboard a ship in the Atlantic Ocean, Steve's struggle with AIDS, the production of their hit Off-Broadway musical The Last Session, their separation and their reconciliation. It's a comedy about a 'gay marriage' between two men created by the couple themselves."
