In the tradition of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Hedwig and the Angry Itch, Taking the Jesus Pill embarks on a soul-searching musical odyssey that critics and audiences have continually praised for more than a year! This erotically infused, southern gothic, rock opera launches a full-on assault of the senses by combining live actors, a full band, a professional burlesque dance troupe and surreal film elements that are splashed across the walls of the theatre. The show follows the soul-seeking odyssey of beautifully innocent Tina, daughter of a slickly subversive, domineering Southern preacher and his victimized wife who continues to blindly follow her husband through his duplicitous motions. When a charismatic young rebel named "Johnny 3:16" offers Tina the possibility of a different path, Tina escapes her world of personal and evangelical hell, only to find that the road to self-discovery holds many truths we can face and just as many that we can't.
