My overall impression

I was intrigued, and a bit frightened by the show going in, as the word ‘Jesus’ always gives me jitters. Boy, am I glad I went. Mike Schlitt’s solo show is truly amazing—-so intelligent, funny, heartfelt and just plain crazy good fun!!! The script’s unlikely narrative combines too many disparate elements to mention here—a hilarious compendium of Jesus Movies, tons of delicious Hollywood trivia, an interesting take on the history of Christians and Jews, freakish tales of the worst movie job ever, the story of a dying dad who just wants to smoke a goddamn cigarette—so seamlessly and to such powerful effect. I’m still not sure exactly how they did it. I highly recommend this show to anyone who likes theatre that provokes them to think and to feel—while making you laugh your ass off. The free popcorn was a very nice touch.
