COTTON PATCH GOSPEL
COTTON PATCH GOSPEL has been highly acclaimed by
critics and the public alike. This award winning musical drama is a leg-slappin', toe-tappin', hand-clappin' hoe-down of a story that retells the Gospels of Matthew and John--translated into present day Southern vernacular. It brings the far away places of Nazareth, Jerusalem and Bethlehem closer to home--Atlanta and Valdosta, Georgia. From his birth in a Gainesville, Georgia trailer to His Good Friday lynching and Easter Sunday victory, the story of Mary Davidson's son, Jesus, is presented musically with zest
and uninhibited joy. The musical score is by the late Harry
Chapin, founder of "World Hunger Year" and composer of
such well known hits as "Cat's in the Cradle" and "Taxi".
Harry Chapin considered himself "born to write the music
for COTTON PATCH GOSPEL."
COTTON PATCH GOSPEL is special. It is a rare dramatic
presentation that succeeds in both entertaining and sharing fresh insight into the Gospel--the greatest story ever told.
