About this show

The Big Bang is staged as a backers' audition for an $83.5 million, twelve-hour stage production of the history of the world, from creation to the present. Eighteen side splitting numbers portraying Adam and Eve, Attila the Hun, the building of the pyramids, Julius Caesar and Columbus (among others), give the potential investors a taste of the impending extravaganza. In the process, the opulent Park Avenue apartment "borrowed" for the occasion is trashed as its furnishings are used to create makeshift costumes. While singing and clowning their way through inventive recreations of the past, the cast stops occasionally for a little supplicating show biz patter.
