“American Passion Plays: Theatre Versions of the ‘Greatest Story Ever Told’ in the New Millennium.”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

North American outdoor passion plays are not marginal theatrical sites; focusing critical attention on these faith-based dramas is particularly urgent in the context of the rise of religiosity in U.S. politics. The amateur evangelical shows offer troubling representations of Jews, racial exclusivity, and implicit assumptions of authenticity; yet, as community theatre endeavors, they hold forth possibilities for innovative iconography.
