I’m sure you folks have heard the story by now.  Religious zealotry meets ignorance, ignorance breeds fear, fear leads to panic.  Throw in a whole bunch of misinformation and overreaction and you get a theatre company which needs to find a new home.  Theatre folk come to the rescue and you get a production that needs an audience.  Let’s dwell on the positive now.

THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (Abridged) takes audiences on a wild and hilarious ride through the Good Book. At break-neck speed, three actors parody the “greatest story ever accepted as fact,” wrestling with some of the great theological questions like, “Did Adam and Eve have navels?” “Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?” and “Why isn’t the word ‘phonetic’ spelled the way it sounds?” This is a show that puts the fun in fundamentalism, proving that God has a sense of humor. Fire and Brimstone anyone?
