THE BIG BANG Begins Tomorrow at Performance Network Theatre
Straight from Williamston Theatre in a special partnership, the smash hit musical "The Big Bang" will come to Performance Network Theatre for a special two-week engagement starting this Thursday, August 21. Tickets are on sale now. Ticket holders that had shows cancelled when the Theatre temporarily suspended operations can use those tickets for this exclusive Ann Arbor event.
Encore Michigan raves "This "Big Bang" takes a single, germinating concept and works within that simplicity to explode it into a fully-realized musical that, in its own way, must be seen to be believed."
Directed by Rob Roznowski with Musical Direction by Jeff English and starring Matt Gwynn and Zev Steinberg, "The Big Bang" is the outrageous musical comedy featuring two wanna-be producers desperate to line up funding for their new project. They've set up a "backers' audition" and everyone is invited. With a cast of hundreds, the overblown extravaganza they've written is the biggest thing Broadway has ever seen and depicts the entire history of the world - beginning with the formation of the planets! Will Broadway ever be the same? This zany song-and-dance romp will leave everyone breathless!
The fundraising goal of $62,000 by September 1 was a lofty one but one that has almost been reached thanks to a group of anonymous donors and their dollar-for-dollar matching gifts program to benefit the theatre. For every dollar donated between now and September 1 a matching gift will be made up to $10,000. The group of generous donors is also seeking others to join them in funding the match and increasing the maximum to $25,000.
Artistic Director Suzi Regan commented, "The support for this theatre from the community has been astounding...frankly, we are overwhelmed. We are really excited to be able to put a show on our stage and so grateful to Williamston Theatre for allowing us to extend this hit musical."
