Storefront Church, the final installment in John Patrick Shanley’s “Church and State” trilogy, opens off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater on June 11. Written and directed by Shanley, Storefront Church will play the newly renovated Linda Gross Theare through June 24.
The production stars an ensemble of acclaimed actors including Once Upon a Time and Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito, Tony winner Tonya Pinkins, Tony nominee Bob Dishy, Tony nominee Zach Grenier, Jordan Lage and Ron Cephas Jones.
Storefront Church tells the story of a Bronx borough President (Esposito) who, forced by the mortgage crisis, must confront a local minister (Jones). The question in front of them is one that faces us all: What is the relationship between spiritual experience and social action?
