The musical will play its first regional stop Aug. 1-19 at The New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco. Co-creators (and the show's original stars) Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin will play the California run. Carl Danielsen and Dale Radunz currently star Off-Broadway.

The Big Voice: God or Merman? concerns the relationship between Brochu and Schalchlin "and hilariously proves that showbiz is as much a calling as the priesthood. This high energy, razzle-dazzle show chronicles the lives of a Baptist from Arkansas and a Catholic from Brooklyn who find eternal salvation in the temple of musical theatre." The biographical musical "traces the couple's meeting aboard a ship in the Atlantic Ocean, Steve's struggle with AIDS, the production of their hit Off-Broadway musical The Last Session, their separation and their reconciliation. It's a comedy about a 'gay marriage' between two men created by the couple themselves."

The Big Voice currently plays Saturdays at 3 PM, Sundays at 2 PM and Mondays at 8 PM.

The Actors Temple Theatre is located in Manhattan at 339 West 47th Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
