About this show

The Good Faith, the latest work (and first musical) by playwright/director Harold Dean James, is a musical dealing with the extremes and the variations of being raised in a religious household, expressed through music and dance. The musical is based on a true story of the life of Richard Rawe, a native of Soap Lake, WA, a city about 200 miles east of Seattle. Rawe was an elder of the Jehovah's Witness faith and with his wife, Frances, was "disfellowshipped" based on false allegations from a corrupt faction of rival ministers. Frances, however, secretly tape-recorded the deliberations of the usurpers, who were actually guilty of both embezzlement and sexual harassment of congregants. The Rawes were subsequently reinstated, then again disfellowshipped as the scandal shook the Spokane Valley during the last decade. For group sales, call 212-254-6468.
