'St. Mark's Gospel' headed back to Mercury

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

"Mark’s Gospel," which will close its premiere run on Sunday at the Mercury Theatre, will return the venue, 3745 N. Southport, for an encore engagement June 5-28.

Starring Max McClean ("The Screwtape Letters") in a one-man tour-de-force, the play is based on the story of the life of Jesus as revealed in the gospel of St. Mark.

In her review of the show, Sun-Times theater critic Hedy Weiss said “I've always found a good deal of the Bible baffling. Only after seeing 'Mark's Gospel' did I realize what had been missing. It comes down to performance. With wit and humor Max McLean brings a dramatically rooted clarity to what is a profoundly mysterious odyssey.”

"Mark’s Gospel" is directed by Jeffrey Fiske.

For tickets, $20-$48.50, call the theater box office at (773) 325-1700, or visit www.ticketmaster.com. Discounted tickets for groups are also available by calling (773) 477-7666.
