Description: A contemporary musical about Mary Magdalene and her powerful relationship with the man known to the world as Jesus Christ. This ultra-progressive story is inspired by the recent discovery of alternative biblical gospels - "The Gnostic Gospels." In this passionate musical about religion and sacrifice, Mary and Yeshua are destined to become husband and wife, and face together the dangerous and corrupt powers of the time - the Roman Empire and the church - battling not only new religious ideas, but also the opposition to empowering women.
