'The Big Voice' Bursts into SF Engagement, Begins 8/1

The New Conservatory Theatre Center of San Francisco is proud to announce the exclusive limited-engagement of the off-Broadway hit The Big Voice: God or Merman? starring the original cast, Steve Schalchlin and Jim Brochu! The show previews August 1 – 3; opens August 4 and runs through August 19, 2007.

"Direct from off-Broadway, real-life partners Steve Schalchlin and Jim Brochu join New Conservatory Theatre Center for this exclusive Pride Season 13 production where they musical-ize their relationship and hilariously prove that showbiz is as much a calling as the priesthood," states press notes, "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."

The Big Voice: God or Merman? show times are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2PM. All performances will take place at the New Conservatory Theatre Center's Decker Theatre, located at 25 Van Ness Avenue near Market, in San Francisco.

Tickets are $25-$30 ($15 for previews; $35 for opening night) Tickets are available at NCTC's Box Office 415-861 8972, or online at
