Cotton Patch Gospel

This post is long overdue but very important. Last Friday night, we saw Cotton Patch Gospel at Waukesha Civic Theatre and it was absolutely extraordinary. The show has since completed its run on Sunday. But if it hadn’t, I would be encouraging you all to go see it. The musical is a retelling of the Gospel of Matthew set in Georgia and played is the style of an old southern tent revival. Most of the show is performed by one individual playing multiple characters with four musicians assisting with the singing and some of the dialogue.

John Cramer was outstanding in the lead role and his four musicians (banjo/guitar, fiddle/mandolin, guitar, and bass) were perfect. What a captivating way to tell the story of Jesus. Kudos to everyone involved for a superb job. There was a mention in the program that bringing all or part of the show to your church would be a perfect way to spice up your service. I couldn’t agree more. As I don’t want to put the contact email address in this post, contact me if you are interested and I will forward the address on to you.
