“Are you ready for a miracle?"
You’ll be dancing in the aisles when con man Jonas Nightingale brings his gospel-charged tent revival to rain-starved Kansas. Four-time Tony Award-nominee Raúl Esparza and Golden Globe Award-nominee Brooke Shields will star in this world premiere Broadway-bound new musical.
Based on the movie with Steve Martin, Leap of Faith boasts a brand new score from 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and directed and choreographed by Tony Award®-winner Rob Ashford, helmer of the recent Taper favorite, Parade.
When his traveling ministry breaks down in a small Kansas town, part-time reverend and full-time con artist (Esparza) quickly pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival. The sheriff is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money, but Jonas’ real challenge arises when he meets a pretty waitress (Shields) and her son, whose love forces an ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith.
