Original 2005 cast members Greg Alexander, Jason Kuykendall and Chris Schlagel return in Graham and Feuer’s cosmic romp “The Big Bang,” opening June 15.

Reprising their roles as two wannabe producers, Greg and Jason pitch their new idea for a musical recounting the history of the world to prospective investors. Chris accompanies as they introduce us to Adam and Eve, Nefertiti Queen of Egypt, Julius Ceasar, the Virgin Mary, Christopher Columbus, Pocahontas, Napoleon, Jimi Hendrix and many others in this gloriously campy and outrageously funny show.

“The Big Bang” (originally entitled “Free Food and Frontal Nudity”) premiered at PSI Theatre in Durham, NC, before opening Off-Broadway in 2000. Boyd Graham earned two Drama Desk Award nominations for his work on the show. B Street’s 2005 production, also directed by Acting Company member John P. Lamb, ran for a staggering 108 performances.

This summer’s special engagement of the show, June 15 through July 17, is expected to quickly sell out; patrons are encouraged to buy their tickets as soon as possible. The show is recommended for mature audiences due to partial nudity.

Performances for “The Big Bang” are 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 1 p.m. Sundays. A special preview performance will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 14. Tickets are $35 general, $30 for students and seniors and $15 for the preview show. B Street Theatre is located at 2727 B St. in Sacramento For tickets and more information call (916) 443-5300 or visit bstreettheatre.org.
