BOZEMAN —The Equinox Theatre Company presents "The Complete Bible (Abridged)."
From the maniacs who brought you "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)," Equinox presents a night of riotous mayhem, Fridays and Saturdays through 17 at 8 p.m. at the Equinox Theatre.
There is no show on Friday, May 16, because of the Wine Tasting Extravaganza at the Baxter, but to make up for it, there will be a special Thursday show on May 15.
The company's three lunatics will try to reenact the stories of all 1,200 pages and 64 books of the Bible — both Old and New Testaments. Not possible, you say?! This is the 100-yard dash of biblical scholarship! Sunday school for the short-attention-span generation!
Musical numbers, magic tricks, wigs, sandals, and fig leaves will grace the Equinox stage with phantasmagorical displays including the In The Beginning Blues, and the World Wrestling Federation's long-awaited match between Jacob and The Angel Gabriel, as well as the Top Ten Rejected Commandments.
The cast of a 1,000 characters (portrayed by three hopefully versatile actors). How do they do it? Well, on the eighth day, He created caffeine!
This play is written for both religious scholars and Sunday school dropouts alike whether they know a lot about The Good Book or none at all. The show will be performed by Kent Davis, Soren Kisiel and Erin Roberg and directed by Davis, Kisiel, Roberg and Katie Goodman of the Equinox Theatre Company.
Written by Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, the show contains a few bad — but funny — words and mature references. (Think PG-13).
The Wine Tasting Extravaganza fundraiser will be held at the Baxter, upstairs in the new soon-to-be-finished night club. Tickets are $40 each or $75 for two.
Tickets for The Complete Bible (Abridged), are $10. The theater, located at 2304 North 7th Ave.
