WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Faith meets Show Biz in this hysterically funny "solo for two" about a Catholic from Brooklyn and a Baptist from Arkansas who pursue religion, find theatre, fall in love, fall apart, put their lives back together, and sing about it. Epiphanies possible--laughter guaranteed. The story is based on events from the lives of the authors (Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin), who have enjoyed a long-term collaborative partnership personally and professionally. This hit musical winds its national tour in L.A. prior to opening Off-Broadway. Nominated for two 2003 Ovation Awards, Best World Premiere Musical and Best Lead Actor (Jim Brochu). Winner - 2003 Los Angeles Drama Critics' Circle Award, Best Musical Score. Nominated for 2003 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Los Angeles Theatre Production and 2005 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Off-Off-Broadway Production. What the critics are saying: "Recommended! The pair's honesty and effortless attunement achieves considerable humor and impact." -- Los Angeles Times "Critic's Pick! Who could ask for anything more?" -- Back Stage West "Ground-breaking! One of the year's top ten productions." -- Frontiers Magazine "Astonishing original music. Won me over with first a chuckle then a guffaw then tears." -- Windy City Times "This little show carries a big punch." -- Houston Chronicle "Theatrical dynamite. A moving and entertaining evening that swallows two hours in a heartbeat, then lingers in your head long after." -- Omaha World-Herald "As sharp, professional and hysterical as any Abbott and Costello routine, as musical and tuneful as any Cy Coleman, Cole Porter or Richard Rodgers opus" -- Palm Springs Weekly Group Sales Number (10+): 323-663-7973
