About this show

Long on schtick and historical hilarity, The Big Bang is pure entertainment staged as a backer's audition for an $83.5 million, twelve-hour musical staging of the history of the world. In this whirlwind musical, Jed and Boyd try to raise support, and "dough," for the most historically expansive show ever conceived. Set in a borrowed Park Avenue Apartment, this two-man circus sing and clown their way from creation to the present, running through the history of the universe in a record 90 minutes. Using all resources and playing all the roles, including Adam and Eve and Queen Isabella and Columbus, they have their talents put to the test as they try to convince potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this frivolity is somehow worthy of the largest cast, most expensive budget and the longest running time of any known Broadway show. The Big Bang, a mad-capped, two-man musical tour of history, features music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham. There are additional performances on Tuesday, July 11, Wednesday, July 12 and Thursday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m.
