Off-Broadway – Let Us Pray

Off-Broadway has found religion, where several plays have taken up the topic. “Current events inform some of the productions, two of which deal with the abuse of children by clergy. But the plays range from a 15th-century piece featuring a grieving widower’s debate with Death to a modern comedy about tapping more deeply into the faith of one’s fathers. There’s also a musical version of the book “Children’s Letters to God,” and even comedian Dame Edna invokes Jesus in her new Broadway show. While the timing of these shows appears coincidental, they each touch on issues in public thought.”
