In a courtroom halfway between Heaven and Hell, the case of history’s most infamous betrayal is getting reopened. The gospel as we know it gets turned on its head as a parade of saints and sinners take the stand. Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis (The Motherf**ker with the Hat, NYPD Blue, The Sopranos) conjures a world that is equally pious and profane, offering a gritty and hilarious look at free will, destiny, forgiveness and redemption.
Judas Redux is an experiment in pulling back the curtain on how shows are created and produced by independent artists. Starting with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign through closing night, the group will document the entire process of mounting a production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot and open it up for both the community and online audiences to follow and participate in. Updates about the project, including pictures, videos, blogs, and more, can be found at www.judasredux.com. The campaign for Judas Redux was launched on Friday, March 26 and the project goal of $36,000 was met on Monday, April 1 (in under four days of being live). The campaign concluded on April 28 with a total of $62,809.
