About this show

Sprung from the contents of a backpack left on the subway, Major Bang or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dirty Bomb samples Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove and mixes in the true story of David Hahn, a boy scout who built a nuclear reactor in his parents' garage to earn an Atomic Energy Badge. Part magic act, part suspense comedy, part instructional seminar, Major Bang features the collaborative talents of actor/magician Steve Cuiffo, playwright Kirk Lynn, director Paul Lazar, and performer Maggie Hoffman. The Foundry Theatre's productions have been critically recognized and honored with eight Obie Awards and three Drama Desk nominations for "Unique Theatrical Experience." In 2000, The Foundry received the Ross Wetzsteon Obie Award for its "overall contribution to the Off and Off-Off Broadway community" as a theater that both "fosters new envelope-pushing work and that engages artists in the thorniest issues of the world we inhabit."
