COTTON PATCH GOSPEL
Music by Harry Chapin
Book by Tom Key and Russell Treyz
Based on Clarence Jordanï¿½s Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John
"Cotton Patch Gospel" is the exuberant musical that tells the ï¿½Gospel of Matthewï¿½ but set in modern-day, rural Georgia. Jesus is born the son of a carpenter in Gainesville, meets a country preacher named John the Baptizer on the banks of the Chattahoochee and delivers the Sermon on the Mount at Stone Mountain Park. This production features Ron Anderson as Matthew and the Justice Family Bluegrass Band. With music by the late, great Harry Chapin, "Cotton Patch Gospel" is marked by a feeling of childlike belief, wonder and glorious reverence.
