"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.
