BBB Fall Preview: Leap of Faith

    

Four-time Tony Award-nominee® Raúl Esparza and Golden Globe Award®-nominee Brooke Shields will star in the world premiere of the new musical LEAP OF FAITH, which begins performances at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre in September. Tony Award®-winner Rob Ashford is the director and choreographer. LEAP OF FAITH features a score by eight-time Academy Award®-winner Alan Menken, book by Janus Cercone with Glenn Slater, and lyrics by Glenn Slater. When his traveling ministry breaks down in a small Kansas town, part-time reverend and full-time con artist (Esparza) quickly pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival. The sheriff is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money, but Jonas’ real challenge arises when he meets a pretty waitress (Shields) and her son, whose love forces an ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith. The new musical is based on the motion picture LEAP OF FAITH produced by Paramount Pictures Corporation and written by Janus Cercone.
