Leap of Faith

Stage – 2012

Alan's thoughts
It’s so hard to encapsulate the “Leap Of Faith” experience. Was it not a good idea from the start? I liked the movie a lot and especially, the opportunity to write a musical that’s told through gospel revivals; especially as preached by a charming charlatan who can inspire faith and even miracles, while fleecing the flock. Did something go wrong along the way?

I do believe that, had it not taken 10 years (and 3 directors, 2 lyricists and 4 book writers) to move forward with production, it might have had a less tortured path to the stage. All I know, in the end, is that we wrote the musical we intended to write in the best way we knew how and we didn’t reach a big enough audience on Broadway… but hope springs eternal!
