Try the Artisan House. New to me and VERY tasty menu. Excellent service. I even walked from it (at 6th & Main) to the Ahmanson!

Ate at the Pinot Grill. Food was good, but very small portions and overpriced.

It was hard to bekieve this was the first performance. The cast is great and Raul Esparza was phenomenal. I would love to see it again after two more weeks of previews as I sure it will be tweaked some before the Grand Opening.

Description

You’ll be dancing in the aisles when con man Jonas Nightingale brings his gospel-charged tent revival to rain-starved Kansas. Four-time Tony Award-nominee Raul Esparza and Golden Globe Award-nominee Brooke Shields star in this world premiere Broadway-bound new musical.

Based on the movie with Steve Martin, Leap of Faith boasts a brand-new score from 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award®-winner Rob Ashford, of the recent Taper favorite, Parade.

When his traveling ministry breaks down in a small Kansas town, part-time reverend and full-time con artist (Esparza) quickly pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival. The sheriff is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money, but Jonas’ real challenge arises when he meets a pretty waitress (Shields) and her son, whose love forces an ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith.
