Faith Healer - 2006 - Broadway History , Info & More

Booth Theatre (Broadway)
222 West 45th St. New York, NY

FAITH HEALER is a dramatic, mysterious and humorous work focusing on the life and times of Frank Hardy, an itinerant Irish Healer. Uniquely structured, the play is presented in four monologues. The first belongs to Frank, grappling with the mystery of his gift of faith healing. Next is Grace, Frank's patient but suffering wife, who knows too well the special magnificence of her husband. Frank's promoter and set-up man, a Cockney named Teddy, speaks third. His show business spin on events is both touching and comical. Frank's epilogue brings the play to a startling conclusion. In FAITH HEALER, Friel shows us the reality of grace, the unfolding of mystery and the healing powers of faith.
