'Big Voice' Celebrates V-Day with Commitment Ceremonies

An interfaith commitment ceremony hosted by the Actors Temple, The Actors Temple Theatre, and the hit off-Broadway musical, The Big Voice: God or Merman? will take place on February 14th at 8pm at The Actors Temple Theater (339 W. 47th Street) in honor of  V-day and in honor of love.
"Dozens of same sex couples will proudly celebrate their commitment to each other in a public demonstration of their devotion, loyalty and love after the 8pm performance of The Big Voice onstage at the theater. February 11th thru 17th is Freedom to Marry Week in the United States," state press materials.
Written by and starring Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin, (The Last Session), The Big Voice  "hilariously proves that showbiz is as much a calling as the priesthood. 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 Big Voice traces Jim and Steve'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."
All tickets for the special performance of The Big Voice on February 14th are $35. Whether you are there to exchange vows or just witness, it will be a night to remember. The evening includes the show, the ceremony, a commitment certificate and cake. 
The Big Voice: God or Merman? currently plays Tuesday at 8pm, Wednesday at 3pm & 8pm, Thursday at 8pm, Saturday at 3pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm at The Actors Temple Theater (339 W. 47th Street) .
