Most of you already know about this, but I've been playing Jesus in a play called The Last Days of Judas Iscariot at the Gift Theatre on the northwest side of Chicago (that's me there on the left, about to be betrayed with a kiss). It ran throughout my sabbatical, and was one of the most successful shows in the history of the company. So they decided to move it to the Victory Gardens Greenhouse Theatre in Lincoln Park for a 2-month summer run. And I will be doing nine of the 20 shows: tonight, June 12 (our 2nd Opening Night) and July 3-6 and 17-20. If you haven't been able to see it but would like to, let me know. Below is a video that one of our cast member's, Lindsey Pearlman, put together as a promo piece for the move. The play is hysterically funny, profoundly moving, thought-provoking, conversation-starting, and vulgar. It would definitely be rated R were it a movie. So be warned. How can a Christian youth pastor be in a play like this? I'll blog on that later. (Note: music by Sigur Rós).
