“Peterson Toscano’s work combines astute readings of the Bible with great story-telling and comedy. He offers interpretations of the texts and insights that even experienced biblical scholars haven’t seen before. When portrayed by Toscano, Bible stories and characters come to life with wit, sympathy, and humor.”– Dale Martin, Ph.D, Woolsey Professor of Religious Studies, Yale University.

“An absolute must-see for all…I haven’t had my brain opened up and refilled so gracefully in a long, long time. My heart loved it too.”– Scott Turner Schofield, performance artist and writer
