From the musical genius behind the Broadway blockbusters Wicked and Pippin comes this exuberant take on the Gospel According to Matthew. An offbeat group of disciples helps Jesus bring his enduring parables to life through games, stories, and unforgettable songs by Grammy and Tony Award winner Stephen Schwartz. Having touched the hearts of theatregoers throughout the world, this timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love grapples with the eternal question: How can spirituality survive in a stubbornly material world? Rejoice and prepare ye for a legendary show that “never stops bopping, bouncing, bounding” (The New York Times).
