As the most sacred time of the year approaches for Christians throughout the world, the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in lower Manhattan is offering homebound audiences, this Easter, the opportunity to stream the critically acclaimed performance of "The Gospel of John" beginning Holy Saturday, April 11, at 4 p.m.
The play will be available for viewing free of charge at sheencenter.org/gospelofjohn through Easter Monday, April 13.
“The Gospel of John” stars award-winning Broadway actor Ken Jennings (“Sweeney Todd,” “Grand Hotel,” “Side Show”) in a production that weds prayer and theater in a profoundly intimate retelling of the life of Christ in the timeless voice of the disciple John. True to the scriptural text and performed in a slightly abbreviated format, Jennings brings “The Gospel of John” to life through the deeply personal gaze of the beloved disciple.
The one-man performance is an account of the life of Jesus expressed in a 90-minute theatrical production.
