Exactly three years ago this week, I reviewed Kate Fodor's fear-of-God-inducing 100 Saints You Should Know during its initial Off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons.
For those New Yorkers who didn't have an opportunity to see that incarnation, you'll now have a chance to see another production.
Rebecca Hengstenberg is directing Pat Clune, Pat Dwyer, Catherine Goodman, Eddie Vona and Ellen Warner in a strictly limited engagement for this provocative play at The Shell Theater (300 West 43rd Street 4th floor) this September 22-25 at 8:00 p.m. and September 26 at 2:00 p.m.
100 Saints You Should Know is described by SmartTix as follows:
Theresa is estranged from her family and working as a cleaning woman when she is surprised by the desire to learn how to pray. Matthew, the priest whose rectory she cleans, is stunned and heartbroken by the realization that he no longer knows how to talk to God. When Matthew disappears one day, Theresa feels compelled to track him down, and her search changes both of their lives.While I regret not being available to be there for any of next weekend's performances -- especially given how moved I was three years ago by Fodor's compelling story of life and death as faith intersects with doubt -- I certainly wish I'd be able to see it anew.
