THE WORD IS OUT ON JESUS IN INDIA!
“So, like, Jesus is a total stoner and sometimes, you know, kind of a jerk. But he’s totally cute, and totally good on guitar. Mr. Suh, who has a fine ear for modern speech and stoned silliness, takes giddy delight in making Jesus a fairly normal, foul-mouthed guy. This Ma-Yi Theater Company production directed by Daniella Topol moves quickly and has imaginative touches, including Kris Stone’s sparsely evocative set, complete with a rolling wooden camel.” – The New York Times

“The show is really fun. There are lots of bratty teenage fights and high-on-weed revelations. The punk music is played with great, silly, gusto.”
“… a wild and frequently amusing rumspringa for the adolescent Christ… Jesus in India is filled with entertaining incongruities, along with some interesting insights: Suh gestures to the parallels between the hippie thirst for new spirituality and the flowering of new faiths in the first-century Middle East.” – Village Voice
AND AUDIENCES AGREE!
“An interesting, funny, profane and very touching piece. And a rock musical. Wow!” -Christine S.
“The play made me think about my own family and my own faith in ways that I appreciate. Seeing such an unusual and unexpected story (in a church!), it felt like a communal religious experience that I very much recommend.” – Sheldon T.
“It is always refreshing to see a small theatre group create such big performances with professional and enthusiastic energy. With the ongoing fight for Broadway to create projects with mass appeal, I thank you wholeheartedly for a night of pure creativity, talent and intelligence in an intimate and well designed setting.” – Anne N.
