A whirlwind trip through 33 films about Jesus Christ interspersed with the confessions of the secular, humanist, non-practicing Jewish movie zealot who watched them all, Jesus Ride is a rollicking multimedia solo performance by Mike Schlitt. Part movie history, part personal odyssey, the performance traces the origins of the rabbi who became the father of modern Christianity from his first appearance on the written page to his most recent cinematic incarnations. Winner of Outstanding Solo Show at the New York Fringe Festival, Jesus Ride is a hilarious story featuring two protagonists — one the son of God, the other, the son of a TV writer.
