A charismatic con man learns about the power of love in this area premiere of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Leap of Faith. Featuring Twin Cities Gospel Choir and presented by Minneapolis Musical Theatre.
The “Reverend” Jonas Nightingale, an electrifying performer and con artist, is travelling with his ministry when his bus breaks down in a small Kansas town. When the part-time reverend and full-time crook pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival, the sheriff, a woman named Marla McGowan, is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money. Jonas’ real challenge arises when he meets the sheriff and her son, whose love forces an ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith.
Based on the 1992 comedy of the same name starring Steve Martin and Debra Winger, Leap of Faith features a a roof-raising score by eight-time Oscar-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors, Disney’s The Little Mermaid), lyrics by Grammy-winner Glenn Slater (Disney’s Tangled) and a book by Janus Cercone and Tony-winner Warren Leight.
The New York Post calls Leap of Faith “High-energy entertainment! Ridiculously fun!” Sure to have audiences dancing in the aisles, Leap of Faith is a moving tribute to the power of faith.
