Review by COURTNEY BURGAN

June 13, 2014 certified reviewer

My overall impression

I expected great music, great acting, and a humorous criticism of the church. Expectations met. What I didn’t expect, was a story-line about forgiveness, redemption and faith. It’s much harder these days to produce a show that can both acknowledge the flaws of a religious institution while also reminding the audience about the purpose that religion was actually meant to serve. Further, setting the show within an actual service allowed for the most seamless audience participation I’ve ever encountered, and created a device in which telling a story through song could only be successful. My already high expectations were completely surpassed. Kudos!!! (PS, I’ve already got my tickets for two more shows – you don’t want to miss this!)

Crawling through late-middle-age, a diligent husband keeps his sanity with offbeat guidance from a therapist-astrologer. Together they cure old age with New Age.
