Celebrate long-term gay relationships! That is what Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin are doing in their award-winning two-man musical-comedy show, “The Big Voice: God or Merman?,” at San Francisco’s New Conservatory Theatre Center.
The San Francisco Chronicle says that Brochu and Schalchlin’s 22-year relationship are at the heart of the show. The characters are in a long-term, gay relationship but they cannot legally express the commitment to one another the way the heterosexual community can.
Ed Decker, New Conservatory Theatre Center’s artistic and executive director says, “‘Big Voice’ really is for everybody,” he adds. “Jim and Steve are a gay couple who have been together for a long time, but their life experience speaks to a universal truth of relationships and how we bond with one another and what sort of ignites our imagination, how we survive together with our friends, with our partners, with our lovers.”
“Big Voice” promises music, laughs and an honest look at long-term gay relationships. But you must act quickly. Big Voice is in previews Aug. 1-3 and runs Aug. 4-19.
