Sans Comedia announces the premiere of Bethlehem, Julian Mesri’s bilingual musical pageant about religion, romance, and perpetual occupation.
‘Bethlehem’ is a new musical retelling of the nativity story from the point of view of those who didn’t make it into the Gospels – the innkeepers and guests at the inn, who have no idea what’s going on in the manger next door. Jews, Samaritans and Essenes gather ’round the Saturnalia tree in the Roman-occupied town’s only inn. As the locals vent their hardships, dreams, and petty squabbles, who has time to notice a baby being born in the manger next door?
All performances take place at St Pauls Theater (334 S. 5th St, Brooklyn NY ).
Performances: December 4th, 6th, 11th, and 13th
Time: Doors open at 7:30pm
Tickets: $15, $20 (https:www.artful.ly/store/events/7725)
