"Are you down with G-O-D?" Good girl Mary and her domineering best friend Hilary Faye are starting their senior year at the top of the social food chain at American Eagle Christian High School – that is, until Mary’s boy friend tells her he thinks he’s gay. When Jesus appears in a vision, Mary heeds his message "to do everything she can to help him." When her good deeds are met with dire consequences, Mary is forced to question everything she’s ever believed. Through it all, she finds faith in unexpected places and learns what it truly means to be saved.

THIS SHINY, HAPPY NEW MUSICAL IS A BIG-HEARTED, FEEL-GOOD FABLE.—Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
COMPLETELY WINNING! Celia Keenan-Bolger as Mary is warm and hilarious, and Mary Faber is adorably obnoxious as Hilary. Curtis Holbrook as Roland is easily capable of charming the dangerously edgy, tough girl Cassandra of Morgan Weed.—Jeremy Gerard, Bloomberg News
FIVE STARS. THIS FRESH, FUNNY SHOW IS THE ANSWER TO A MUSICAL-THEATER LOVER’S PRAYERS!—Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
A Keeper! This winning new musical features a jaunty pop/rock score, Gary Griffin’s sprightly staging, appealing performances by the cast, and amusing book and lyrics.—Frank Scheck, New York Post
