Philip D. Vetro directs Terrence McNally’s play, hailed by Time magazine as one of the best plays of 1998. It is a controversial, humorous, spiritual, and ultimately moving re-telling of the passion of Jesus Christ with a contemporary twist. In this modern day morality play, Joshua (a young homosexual man) and his twelve gay apostles go on a quest to re-discover faith and to celebrate the divinity that lives in all of us, even as we struggle to exist in an age of greed, corruption, hatred, and violence.
This play contains nudity, profanity, and adult situations that may be offensive to some audience members; this play is not suitable for children.
