Leap Of Faith

Closed May 13, 2012

A new musical from Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, starring Raoul Esparza.

Why See Leap Of Faith?

When his traveling ministry breaks down in a small Kansas town, part-time reverend and full-time con artist Jonas Nightingale (Raúl Esparza) quickly pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival.

The town sheriff is determined to stop him from separating the townspeople from their money.

A new musical on Broadway based on the motion picture, "Leap of Faith," produced by Paramount Pictures Corporation and written by Janus Cercone, it boasts a brand new score from 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast), a book by Janus Cercone and Warren Leight, and lyrics by Glenn Slater.
