The Gallery Players present the 1970s folk-rock musical, a series of Christian parables and the story of Jesus. More…
The musical, based on the Gospel of Matthew, with music by Stephen Schwartz, features a Tony-nominated score filled with the popular hits 'Day By Day,' 'Learn Your Lessons Well' and 'Turn Back, O Man.' Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. Toward the end of the second act, the show begins to follow a more linear narrative as Jesus is betrayed by Judas and eventually crucified.
