WHY:

Raúl Esparza and Brooke Shields star in "Leap of Faith," a world premiere musical about part-time reverend and full-time con artist Jonas Nightingale (Esparza) whose traveling ministry breaks down in a small Kansas town. Jonas quickly pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival. The sheriff is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money, but Jonas' real challenge arises when he meets Marva (Shields), a pretty waitress with a young son. Her love forces the ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith.
