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.
