Two More Reviews

The NY Post review this morning was strange. It started out by sounding like it was going to be a pan because the writer seems to be tired of musical writers writing about themselves, but then he says about how we tell our story, "The pair relates the particulars in amusing fashion, with Brochu being particularly funny as he recalls his introduction to musical theater via a recording of Ethel Merman's "Gypsy" and his subsequent encounters with the diva herself.

Interspersed throughout are original numbers that demonstrate the duo's talent for sensitive and lyrically incisive songwriting.”

It's the best quote yet about my songwriting!

The gay publication, NEXT, gave us a rave review. It's not online, so I'll type it in here: "No lavishness needed at Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin's THE BIG VOICE: GOD OR MERMAN?, a sweet little autobiographical show that will have religious dropouts and musical theater queens kvelling. Best known for their writing in THE LAST SESSION, Brochu and Schalchlin's BIG VOICE details their respective lives as a Cathlic from Brooklyn and a Baptist from Arkansas who find salvation in the theater--and each other--with a little help from Ethel Merman. It's heart is in the right place and both performers are easy to love."
