The Collective Studio: Los Angeles Presents: Jesus Hopped the A Train by Steven Adly Guirgis


This play tackles such epic themes as religion, moral absolutes, our relationship to God, and our relationships to each other - as seen through the eyes of 5 characters at a New York prison. Lucius, a convicted serial killer facing possible extradition to Florida for execution; Angel, who awaits trial at the top of the show; Mary Jane, a public defender assigned to Angel's case; and D'amico and Valdez, two correctional officers.

'Jesus Hopped The A Train' asks hard questions about faith and the justice system and inspires us to question our own perceptions and long held beliefs. Can we believe in God amongst such great evil in the world? Where is that line within you between good and bad, innocent and guilt, right and wrong? Are you willing to do "a great right" at the expense of "a little wrong?" How far would you go to be saved?

The project's director, Ashley Teague, is a social activist theater maker whose mission is to create art that engages deeply with community and address the issues a community cares about. She strives to encourage artists who work on her plays, as well as the theater scene at large, to push the boundaries of what theater can do for its audiences.

It is in this vein that The Collective Studio: Los Angeles partners with the Rescue-A-Life Foundation so that your tax deductible donation can go toward producing a play that raises money to help provide services and housing to the homeless, veterans, formerly incarcerated and their families.
Thank you for opening your hearts to this important project and making possible the creation of thought-provoking, relevant theater, which uplifts the issues of our time and celebrates the human spirit.

The Collective Studio: Los Angeles

Due to our Studio's fast success, we are thrilled to have expanded the scope of Collective Studio's work to now include a Theatrical Productions division. In Fall of 2011, under the Actors Equity 99 Seat Plan, Collective Studio founder, Kelly Shea, produced the company's first production, as both a creative endeavor and an act of social engagement by partnering with The Boys and Girls Club and donating all proceeds to the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation. In 2012, the studio worked again with Director Ashley Teague to produce Jesus Hopped the A Train by Stephen Adly Gurgis, donating proceeds to the Rescue-A-Life Foundation.  The Collective Studio's productions give the actors who attend our workshops a chance to audition for and participate in a professional theater experience, as well as provide an opportunity for us to give back to the community we serve.

After the decided success of the production of Jesus Hopped the A Train, The Collective Studio:Los Angeles was asked to produce a new project this year under the direction of Robyn Cohen.

 True to the company's mission statement, this year's production of Tape by Stephen Belber will also be both a powerful theater experience and a medium for social activism.  Proceeds of the show will  benefit the Peace Over Violence Organization, which provides comprehensive services to the homeless and those victim to domestic violence.  Please join us in our journey to make a difference.
