Wow, what a week! Perhaps you’ve been wondering why I’m not writing lately.
Not to worry, I’ve been in all day/night rehearsals for the new musical, “The Witnesses” and we had two preview shows this past weekend. We started rehearsing together on Tuesday and did the show on Saturday & Sunday nights.
It was so good to see so many of my friends come out to the show last night – that really means alot. This show is so meaningful to me – it’s God’s Word in theatre, two of my favorite things! – and it’s so cool that we were able to share it together last night. Thank you for taking the time to come out.
If you weren’t able to see it – you really missed an historic occasion. It’s the starting point for an incredible journey – like the other show, “The Rock & The Rabbi” has become.
The cast is nothing short of amazing…all pros, all so very talented. Well, we rehearsed and performed the entire show in a week – that says alot right there. The singers – Neal, David and Aaron – you guys knocked it out of the park! Excellent work.
Danny Hamilton, who wrote all the songs & lyrics, has completely outdone himself with these songs. I’m not sure I can even do justice describing them here – you’ll just have to see the show.
Gary, as he did with the show “The Rock and the Rabbi”, manages to bring us right into the presence of some of my personal Biblical heroes, Peter, Paul and James. As Gary tells the story, it’s almost as if you’re right there as it was happening.
If you’re not familiar with these shows, they’re sort of hard to describe – they have to be experienced. It’s a combination of captivating, edge-of-your-seat storytelling and unique, ecclectic songs from all different genres. Na, that doesn’t help. Well, as I said, you’ll need to see the shows to understand.
If you love God’s word, and if you enjoy hearing the Truth told in new and interesting ways, you’re sure to enjoy them.

To Danny & Gary: It’s a distinct pleasure to work with you on this new show. I know you know this, but what this show does is get the Word into ears and hearts that may not have otherwise heard it. That’s what this life is all about for us. I’m so thrilled to see God work through you guys in this way – and to be a part of it again is a joy that’s difficult to describe.
To the rest of the cast: Wow – you are all so very talented. I’m so juiced about how we all ended up working together on this. You all ROCKED last night! I’m still buzzing. It’s gonna be a great ride and I couldn’t think of any other people I’d rather share it with.
