Corpus Christi--Losing My Religion?

4.0
I just got back from Onstage Atlanta's production of Terrence McNally's "Corpus Christi" and was very impressed not only by the script but the all-male ensemble, the direction and the lighting. This is the first production of the play here in Atlanta. Actually, there was one other at Kennesaw State that got shut down after one performance. So this time the play is being done INSIDE the perimeter where there's still free speech in the arts.

It's the retelling of the story of Jesus Christ, except updated to modern day. Jesus is now Joshua, born to Mary in Corpus Christi Texas (in a sleazy motel while the couple next door are going at it). His first kiss comes from Judas at the high school dance during a cigarette break (while Donna Summer's last dance blasts from the gym). As you can see, it has a bit of irreverance, but when the show must become come reverent, it easily transitions over to what must inevitably happen to Joshua. And there McNally makes his statement in this story about persecution not only of Jesus but also of gay men. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
