The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told

Auditions: The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told

Out Front Theatre Company

Details

Inspired by the fundamentalist remark, “God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told in another version of Biblical history. Act One recounts the major episodes of the Old Testament, only with a twist: Instead of Adam and Eve, our lead characters are Adam and Steve, and Jane and Mabel, a lesbian couple with whom they decide to start civilization (procreation proves to be a provocative challenge) As these two gay couples navigate the centuries together as friends, and encounter various different odd characters, we follow them through a crazed historical pageant that brings us down to a present-day NYC. Out Front’s Producing Artistic Director, Paul Conroy, will direct.

All those interested in auditioning are asked to prepare a contemporary comedic monologue not to exceed 90 seconds.  Only callbacks will consist of cold readings from the script.

 

Please bring a recent headshot and resume.
