LEAP OF FAITH
Four-time Tony Award® nominee Raúl Esparza (Cabaret, Company) starred as Jonas Nightingale, an electrifying performer and rabble rouser who's planning to take the whole town for a ride. But when a small-town girl stops him in his tracks, this hustler may just discover something to believe in.
Leap of Faith featured a roof-raising new score by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors). The creative team also included bookwriters Janus Cercone and Tony®-winner Warren Leight (Side Man); Grammy®-winning lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled); choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys); and Christopher Ashley, director of the Tony®-winning Best Musical Memphis.
Leap of Faith played the St. James theatre from April 3, 2012 through May 13, 2012.
It was nominated for the Best New Musical Tony Award®.
