“Corpus Christi” at Richmond Triangle Players

Jan. 31 through Feb. 24

comment
The theater proudly presents the New Testament told in a radically new way. Playwright Terrence McNally’s “Corpus Christi” re-enacts the story of Jesus and his apostles using a group of gay men living in modern-day Texas — with Judas’ motivation being sexual jealousy. Condemned by the Catholic League when it was performed in New York in the late ’90s, the playwright soon received death threats, driving home the work’s message even more clearly. This provocative drama will be directed by Dexter Ramey with performances running Jan. 31 through Feb. 24. $10 to $30. For ticket information, visit rtriangle.org.
