~ They begin a journey with high expectations; what they find is very different from what they anticipated… ~
Easter Mysteries is a Musical Feature Film that journeys into the passion of Christ’s death and resurrection mainly through the lens of his disciples and followers. The story is a celebration that sheds a new light onto the biblical figures of Christ’s story in human terms – ordinary people with hopes, dreams and fears, uncertain of what lies ahead.
Music, libretto and lyrics are by John O’Boyle, a Tony Award® winning Broadway producer (La Cage aux Folles, 2011; Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike, 2013). Original cast consists of culturally diverse and talented Broadway veterans who have graced the stages of Les Miz, Mary Poppins, Porgy and Bess, Phantom, and more.
“(The) oratorio is both theatrical and heartfelt… and I think he has succeeded in creating a modern work that will speak to a wide group.”
“The Easter Mysteries CD is sublime…uplifting, joyful and consoling.”
