Raúl Esparza headlines this inspired new musical.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Raul Esparza is the guy you want in your show when your leading character is having a crisis of faith. There is a delicious cynicism to all Esparza does here, whether it's taking care of his partner in crime, his little sister or wooing the wounded-but-beautiful town sheriff.’’
‘‘If you're looking for pure Broadway razzmatazz, 'Leap of Faith' delivers the goods. Robin Wagner's set turns the interior of the St. James Theatre into a revival tent, and Christopher Ashley and Sergio Trujillo, the director and choreographer, put every square inch of it to effective use. The chorus rocks and rolls.’’
‘‘Raul Esparza throws himself into the role, finding the vulnerability and self-doubt in his sleazy character even as he prowls the ramps and slithers on his back to sell his lies. Phillips is a cool drink of water in her tight jeans and cowboy boots. She has a beautiful voice and the vocal skills of Lewis-Evans, Odom and Brown are also heavenly.’’
