The Christians

$75-$95

Ten years ago, Pastor Paul's church was a modest storefront. Now it houses thousands, with a coffee shop in the lobby and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation's beliefs. Backed by a live choir, THE CHRISTIANS is both epic and unexpectedly intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America - and its power to unite or divide.

The cast of THE CHRISTIANS will feature Emily Donahoe, Andrew Garman, Philip Kerr, Larry Powell and Linda Powell.
