What's The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told? That would be the Bible as written by Jeffrey and I Hate Hamlet playwright Paul Rudnick. The farcical gay interpretation of the scriptures opens at San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre May 19 for a run through July 14.

In Most Fabulous Story, a stage manager declares "Let there be light," prompting a theatrical look at the creation of the world. Instead of making woman from man, God created Adam and Steve and Jane and Mabel, a gay and lesbian couple chosen to start civilization. The first act chronicles their adventures in the Old Testament, while the second plays out at a Christmas party in modern-day Manhattan. Rudnick also wrote the screenplays to "Addams Family," "Sister Act" and "In & Out."

George Maguire directs. Featured in the company are Shannon Veon Kase (stage manager), Joey Rich (Adam), Steve (Zach Hummell), Jane (Jana Barber) and Maria Biber-Ferro (Mabel).

Tickets are $25-$15. The New Conservatory Theatre Center is located at 25 Van Ness Avenue near Market Street. For tickets, call (415) 861-8972. The New Conservatory Theatre Center is on the web at http://www.nctcsf.org.
