‘Big Bang’ bursts onto Folsom stage

Have you ever dreamed of getting involved in a big-time Broadway Production? Join Sutter Street Theatre in the elegant Park Avenue apartment of Dr. Sid and Sylvia Lipbalm as two wannabe producers, Jed and Boyd, try to line up backers for “The Big Bang,” the most expensive and lavish Broadway Musical ever written.

With a budget of $83 million, 318 in the cast, 6,428 costumes and 1,400 wigs, this show will depict the entire history of the world — from the formation of the planets, to the building of the pyramid, from Napoleon’s France to the present, Adam and Eve, Nefertiti and the slaves, Julius Caesar,  Mrs. Gandhi, Attila, Columbus, Minnehaha, Tokyo Rose, Eva Braun and more.

Will Broadway ever be the same? Surely, the Lipbalm apartment won’t.

“The Big Bang,” directed by Connie Mockenhaupt with musical direction by Chris Schlagel, opens at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, with a reception following the performance and continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through May 19. Tickets are $23 general, $21 seniors, $18 students with an ID Card and $15 children 12 and younger.  There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more.

Tickets can be purchased by calling (916) 353-1001 or visiting SutterStreetTheatre.com. (Call the box office for group orders.) Sutter Street Theatre is located at 717 Sutter St. in historic Folsom.
