What: Jesus Hopped the A Train
Where: The New Hazlett Theater
When: 8 p.m.
In this play, Angel Cruz is in jail pending his trial for the shooting of Reverend Kim; a cult leader who has brain washed his best friend. During his one hour of daily exercise he meets inmate Lucius Jenkins, a.k.a. “the Black Plague”. A masterful debate about anger, innocence, lying, and ultimately being “right” in Gods eyes ensues. Will you lie for what you believe in, or will you step up and pay a bigger price for that belief? General admission tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door Thurs-Sat and $20 in advance and $25 at the door Sundays.
