Jesus Ride is an epic comedic roller coasterride through thirty-three films about Jesus Christ and the confessions of thesecular humanist non-practicing Jewish movie zealot who watched them all. Thismulti-media solo piece written and performed by Mike Schlitt traces the originsof the rabbi who became the father of modern Christianity, from his firstappearance on the written page to his most recent and lucrative cinematicincarnation. Part movie history, part personal odyssey, Jesus Ride is the story of two protagonists: one--the son of God, the other--son of a Hollywood TV writer.

  Review Round-Up

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Schlitt readily concedes his is hardly the Greatest Story Ever Told, but itís nonetheless a good one with a happy ending: Heís still working in post-production, which is about the best kind of afterlife a Hollywood non-believer could wish for."

Opening the Curtain - Recommended

"...Sounds like a bumpy, circuitous trip, right? It is Ė but thatís part of the playís accessible charm. Schlittís Jesus Ride is like a great dinner party story that just happens to have video all cued up."
