Show Summary
BIG SOUND is a wickedly funny satire set in the big-money, bigger-ego, music business that follows the day-to-day exploits of successful, but disillusioned music manager. Bill Sutton is used to success, money and life at the top of this gold-plated dunghill. Recently however, he’s begun to feel the tinge of age dulling his edge, and a creeping emptiness shadowing his life. He’s surrounded by naked ambition at the agency, and embattled by capricious talent. Now he’s unexpectedly struggling to survive in a business that is nothing but mayhem, reminded daily that in the ‘Music Biz’ over thirty is “over-the-hill.” He’s caught.

Jessie, his ‘out-in-left-field’ right-hand office gal is deeply devoted and ever anxious to help, but she can’t protect him from either the sharks who circle below or from the mystifying whims of the BIG SOUND owner Gabe Moss. Nor can she shield him from the almost constant arbitrary, eccentric, neurotic and just plain strange demands of the talent he represents.

There’s Melissa Etheridge, whose heart is set on an obscure photography process for her latest album cover. Then there’s Randy Bachman who just wants him to keep some pet fish alive, and MC Hammer, who is frantic about a 90-lb. weakling stalker fan. Stewart Copeland wants him to make jam, Jann Arden wants his support for an ill-advised makeover and John Hampson wants a disease, any disease, to raise his profile.

This constant parade of needy talent all want a piece of him, while almost everyone else at BIG SOUND wants to be him, from Nick Keester who thrills to the ‘game’ and openly tries to out manouevre him, to Donna, who just wants to get ahead.

There’s no relief in his private life either. Bill’s teenage daughter Phoebe thinks she has all the answers, is increasingly rebellious against all constraints, and wants a career in the very business that he feels is strangling him. His ex-wife Michelle is civilized in public, but still harbours a grudge against Bill for their failed marriage. She never fails to land a barbed jab when she can, and Bill seems unable to truly connect with another woman. It may be a dog-eat-dog world, but for Bill there’s always the love of the music and the occasional shining moment when he uncovers raw talent. His shining world may be dulling, but Bill’s still got ‘it’ and he’ll hold onto it against all odds.
