It was o.k. - as a music teacher, I must say Brooke Shields was off too many times. She really is in need of a vocal coach to enable her to hit the correct pitches throughout the musical. Way too many bad notes (off key)!

Good performances were hampered by mediocre direction and flat out bad choreography--there were balletic sections that didn't seem to make any kind of statement or story point, including the opening. Love Raul Esparza--his singing was fantastic...continued

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.
