The show was phenomenal. The cast was excellent and held my attention the entire time. The audience was pitifully small for such a great performance. Go see this show. It's intense and emotional and serious and humorous and worth every penny.

Description

Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train centers on Angel, a young Latino man in jail for shooting a religious cult leader. Also in prison is an infamous, born-again serial killer who raises the question: Is faith enough to save those who have not practiced what they believe?

Guirgis’ plays are controversial and at times ferocious, but also stimulating and fiercely intelligent, inspiring audiences to question and debate long after they leave the theatre.
