Jesus Hopped The 'A' Train


Jan 23 - Feb 23, 2020

Jesus Hopped The 'A' Train

When justice locks you up, what sets you free? Gripping from start to finish, two notorious men await trial for murder, only to discover justice and goodness where it is least expected. Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis delivers an uncompromising drama about contradiction, contrition, and hypocrisy.
