Jesus in Montana: Adventures in a Doomsday Cult
JESUS RETURNS! The controversial hit of Rogue '07 makes a second coming. Join Rogue favorite Barry Smith (American Squatter, Barry Smith's Baby Book) on his surreal journey as he discovers that Jesus is alive and well and living in Montana. A true story! This autobiographical, multi-media show ponders the humorous side of faith, beliefs and everyday cult life. WINNER - OUTSTANDING SOLO SHOW - 2005 New York International Fringe Festival. "A devastatingly significant work!" -Montreal Gazette
In the early 90s, writer/performer Barry Smith found himself in a bizarre doomsday cult, living in the basement of a man who claimed to be the return of Jesus. After a few years of earnestly following "Jesus in Montana," Smith grew disillusioned and left the cult. This award-winning comedy offers an irreverent glimpse into the world of religious fanaticism from one who's been there and back. With pictures! Using his signature "Modern Monologue" style, Smith uses projected photos, old audio, home movies and hilariously simplistic graphs to further explain how one gets into--and out of--such a bizarre situation.
