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

“Carefully staged by director Daniella Topol, this uber-hip, rock-infused production depicts the most famous person in the history of Western civilization as just another foul-mouthed teenage burnout squirming under immense parental pressure and his own unfathomable potential… Coping with being the Son of God should be a monumental transition, but Suh instead renders it with casual grace, employing refreshingly contemporary slang, loud music, and Theresa Squire’s stylish modern costumes to ground this prodigal savior in a kind of manageable normalcy.” -Backstage 

“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.”

-NYtheatre.com

“… 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.
