Synopsis

"The Passion Play" is the telling of the events of the life of Jesus Christ, focusing primarily on the last period from his entrance into Jerusalem to his trial and death. The show has been performed without break since 1915, making it the longest running passion play in America. Rewritten in the 1980s to purse any anti-Semitic dialogue or attitudes, the show is now a musical with original music in the 80s pop style.
