St. Ann's Warehouse, NYC
Directed by Paul Lazar
Written by Kirk Lynn
"...surely the happiest show to have been inspired by the horrors of 9/11. Though the subject of Mr. Lynn's self-deconstructing script is the possibility that a nuclear holocaust looms as close in your future as your next subway ride, "Major Bang" proves that laughter in the dark need not be desperate."
- BEN BRANTLEY, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"...simple human connection may be our best weapon against the fear that otherwise might smother us."
- ADAM FELDMAN, TIME OUT NEW YORK
About the show
Major Bang springs from the contents of a backpack left on the subway, samples the Kubrick film, and mixes in a radioactive boy scout, an over-caffeinated dad, and a love affair doomed for nuclear disaster. Part magic act, part suspense comedy, part instructional seminar, Major Bang is a ride through the 21st Century notions of fear.
