Cotton Patch Gospel

When: May 12, 2013
8:00 pm
Where: Playhouse Downtown
Details:  by Tom Key and Russell Treyz

Music and Lyrics by Harry Chapin
Based on the book The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan

Called the “Greatest Story Ever Retold,” this bluegrass musical is a modern retelling of the Gospel in the setting of rural Georgia with songs that are the final, and perhaps best work of Harry Chapin (best known for the number-one hit, “Cat’s in the Cradle”). Herod is recreated as Governor of Georgia, Caiaphas as Dr. Caiaphas, a member of a board of politicians, and Pilate as a local governor who sentences Jesus and sends him to Lee Correctional Institute. Witness a unique retelling of the story of Jesus, brought to life through bluegrass music and imaginative storytelling.
