The Pocono Center for the Arts proudly presents Ken Jennings in his critically acclaimed presentation of The Gospel of John on Sunday, March 19th at 2 PM & 5 PM at Stroudsburg United Methodist Church. Jennings is a veteran of nine Broadway shows including four original casts . He is best known for creating the role of Tobias in the original Broadway company of Stephen Sondheim's Sweney Todd opposite the legendary Angela Lansbury for which he won a Drama Desk Award and a Theatre World Award . Other Broadway credits include Urinetown; Grand Hotel; Side Show; London Assurance; Mayor; Present Laughter and All God's Chillun Got Wings. His Off-Broadway one-man show The Gospel of John opened to critical acclaim from the New York Times, Time Out Magazine and Talkin' Broadway and earned him numerous nominations for Best Solo Performance. When asked why he created the piece, he replied “I memorized this first as a prayer, not as a play, I started memorizing 'The Gospel of John' as a spiritual practice during a difficult time in my life. I've always had an affinity for John, which has always seemed to truly be a firsthand narrative by a man who was actually there." Ken's regional credits include Finian's Rainbow (Finian); A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Pseudolus); Guys and Dolls (Arvide); ; My Fair Lady (Doolittle) and The Wizard of Oz (Oz) with classical credits ranging from Iago in Othello to Shylock in The Merchant of Venice.
