This show was so much fun! An amazing performance from lead Al Rahn who carries the entire thing with a sustained energy that is really remarkable. The music was incredibly well produced if potentially overpowering for a one act show and just proves this baby could easily grow into a full-fledged musical. Ben Stanton and Dan Frey have serious talent, like seriously.
The jokes are hilarious and unassuming, with a slight edge. And while shifting moods in one act plays can often seem jolting due to the shortened time, Rapture navigates itself into dark territory with a slowly building tension that gives us a satisfying release in its tender, yet funny ending. This musical pokes fun at its religious setting while never condemning it, showcasing a universal tale of forgiveness everyone can get behind no matter their beliefs or background.
