Other answers to questions you didn't know you had about the show:
A) The show's coming up next Wednesday through Saturday at the Boston Center for the Arts in their Plaza Black Box Theatre. It is indeed a high-level observance week for both Christians and Jews, but would you consider my special dispensation to observe Holy Week or Passover on 3 of 4 nights and spend the 4th in less serious contemplation? Atheists and agnostics, you've got no excuse.
B) Tickets are $17.50 and can be purchased here.
C) I might be there for opening night if I can blow out of my church choir rehearsal -- and for sure will be there Saturday at 8 p.m., if you are one of the (rare?) folks who reads this and has never met me. (Fair warning: I am not in high-season bikini shape, nor will I be wearing one to the show.)
D) If you are a friend and curious about whether or not you might be featured unknowingly onstage, here's a few teasers about what Justin chose to include:
