Special Fathom Features: Witness an exclusive interfaith panel discussion with prominent Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders in dialogue about the current state of interfaith relations and topics evoked by the profound production of Easter Mysteries.
Fathom Events and SimonSays Entertainment invite you to experience the Passion of Jesus as you have never seen it when the new and original musical, Easter Mysteries, comes to select cinemas nationwide for an incredible one-night cinema event on Tuesday, March 22.
Easter Mysteries is an original, musical theater depiction that journeys into the passion of Christ’s death and resurrection through the lens of his disciples and followers and is the first Passion Play ever told from Peter's perspective. This unique portrayal of iconic biblical characters by an interracial cast offers an innovative and effective reimagining of the Easter story for modern audiences.
Directed by Daniel Goldstein (2011 Broadway revival of Godspell) and brought to you from Tony Award®-winning producers and a veteran Broadway cast, this uplifting musical is a celebration that sheds a new light onto a historical story in human terms – ordinary people with hopes, dreams and fears, uncertain of what lies ahead. With music, libretto and lyrics by Tony Award®-winning producer, John O’Boyle, the breath-taking music is the connective tissue that builds bridges across a diversity of multiracial and religious expressions. This first-rate production offers audiences the chance to see, feel and hear real peoples’ experiences of this touchstone story of Western Civilization in a fresh and moving way.
Cinema audiences will also be treated to an exclusive interfaith panel discussion with prominent Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders discussing the production and its ability to affect interfaith relations. This thoughtful discussion will help bridge the interfaith gap and connect the beliefs of major religious communities in thought-provoking ways. Panelists include:
- Sister Sanaa Nadim, Muslim Student Association Chaplain, State University of New York at Stonybrook
- Evangelist Joyce L. Rodgers, Founder and CEO of Primary Purpose Ministries, Inc.
- The Most Reverend John J. O’Hara, Auxiliary Bishop of New York; Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, Executive Vice President, New York Board of Rabbis and co-host of "Religion on the Line" on WABC radio in NY
- Tony Suarez, Executive Vice President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
- Fr. Brian McWeeney, Director of Interreligious and Ecumenical Affairs, Archdiocese of New York.
“(The) oratorio is both theatrical and heartfelt… and I think has succeeded in creating a modern work that will speak to a wide group.”- Ted Chapin, President, Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization
