It was just OK for me. Some parts were funny/intriguing/smart and other - sub par (for instance, St. Monica dropping the F-word right and left, totally not cool) and simply dreadful.
Overall, it was too long - I'd cut some parts out or at least limit the monologues so that the show would finish within 2 hours (vs. 3 + intermission).

To say we got our $'s worth is an understatement! To begin with, the play is about 3 hours long, with only one intermission. It is phenomenal. The casting couldn't have been better. Those actors meshed so well together & made this fictitious story...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“The Last Days of Judas Iscariot_] shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life’s losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk.” —_The New York Times
“Stephen Adly Guirgis has written a real jaw-dropper…expressionistic fantasy … raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters … his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling.” —Variety
This show contains profane language and is not recommended for children under the age of 13.
About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
