Judith of Bethulia, Tony Award-nominated playwright Charles Busch's latest stage comedy that takes on the 1914 silent Hollywood Biblical epic, began performances March 30 at the Theater for the New City.
Judith of Bethulia is billed as "an outrageous and bawdy celebration of the Hollywood Biblical epic. Lepers, whores, eunuchs, centurions, evil generals, youthful poets and a beautiful redheaded widow make Charles Busch's latest comedy an event worth praying for."
Busch stars in the titular role in a cast that also features Tony nominee Mary Testa, Jennifer Cody, John Wojda, Dave August, Christopher Borg, Kendal Sparks, and Busch stage players Larry Bullock, Jennifer Van Dyck and Billy Wheelan .
Here's a look at the production:
