Big Voice: God Or Merman?, The

Synopsis:
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."

Notes:
written by Jim Brochu And Steve Schalchlin; Additional lyrics by Marie Cain
