Fans of Jesus Christ Superstar will enjoy The Grove Theatre's original musical production The Kingdom, a contemporary rock 'n' roll take on the Passion of Jesus Christ. Through dramatic storytelling, dynamic modern music, authentic costumes and realistic sets, this gritty retelling of the greatest story ever told brings to musical life the last week of Jesus of Nazareth. Although The Kingdom chronicles the story of Christ's trial and crucifixion, it's an ultimately uplifting tale that focuses on love, hope and human compassion. Learn More

The considerable charm of the performers nearly overcomes the extended length of the piece, still in development, that is over-long, scatter-shot in subject matter, scatalogical, and filled with unnecesary swearing. In trying to be topical, the piece occasionally treads into areas extraneous to the plot. The Africa sequence is long and boring. The gay text belongs in some other play. There is a "kitchen sink" quality to the writing. Get as much in as possible and see what works. The performers do not know their lines or blocking(!) and read from teleprompters. Still, a life time of memories from a man who is perpetually in trouble with the law (and his psychiatrist), and a conniving woman who also has a connundrum of memories to overcome brings two characters together in an often touching, sometimes amusing amalgam of farce and drama. Somewhere down the line it may be worth performing to a paying audience, but such is not currently the case. Also, the performers have gone to no trouble to dress in character. Or at all. 7-26-10.

Written by Joe Bologna and Richard Krevolin
Writer/actor Joe Bologna stars as Frankie and also plays all the male characters in Ginna’s life. Mr. Bologna’s wife — stage, screen and TV star Renee Taylor (best-known for playing Fran Drescher’s outspoken mother on the hit TV series The Nanny) — stars as Ginna and also plays all the female characters in Frankie’s life.
The return show has been revised in preparation for a national tour. If you saw it the first time around, see it again and experience the many revisions that have been made. If you missed it, you now have a chance to see these two fine actors perform.
