Terrence McNally's Corpus Christi 'Resurrected' at Rattlestick Theater

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Terrence McNally's play, Corpus Christi, returns to the stage in remembrance of Matthew Shepard's death, which garnered national attention to violence and hate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. LA-based 108 Productions' Corpus Christi has played to sold-out houses for over two years across the country and has received international acclaim.

Originally opening ten years ago at the Manhattan Theatre Club to intense protest and bomb threats, the play's message was lost amidst the rancor. More recently, 108 Productions' Corpus Christi has won praise internationally for its inclusive tale of faith and spirituality. McNally said that he sought to "include the LGBT community at the table of faith and to reclaim our right to explore the divinity in all of us."

This Opening Night Benefit marks the exact date of the show's opening ten years ago. Proceeds from all Benefit ticket sales will support the LGBT Community Center of New York. The performance will be followed with a light reception and meet and greet with the cast and Terrence McNally. Patrons will also receive a complimentary "Corpus Christi" souvenir program. www.108productions.org/program2.html.
