Bach, Shakespeare, Rembrandt……

…What do a German composer, an English playwright, and a Dutch painter have in common? Their art (and the rest of western civilization) was profoundly influenced by the ancient stories of Jesus, the carpenter from Nazareth.

Luke is a solo performance of these stories, memorized word for word from the New Testament and told with the same passion and surprise as at the first telling.

In a compelling ninety minutes, the words come alive with the urgency and humour of someone who was there. The show premiered at the acclaimed Actor's Theatre of Louisville (one of America's largest professional theatres) to enthusiastic reviews and an extended run.

Alone on stage, the actor Bruce Kuhn weaves the tale of the Christ with out props or sets, dressed in modern, casual clothing. The play is memorized in the Authorized (King James) Version, which takes to the spoken word like Shakespeare. After years of other acting work on Broadway and the repertory stage, Mr.Kuhn revived his Luke performance and now tours major universities and colleges throughout the world.

What People are Saying about Bruce Kuhn
“…a stunning retelling…a riveting presentation…an impressive accomplishment. It is an evening of suspense and a joyous sense of discovery. …he handled that brief memory slip with a lack of pretension that marks his entire performance. However Kuhn’s finest accomplishment is the air of surprise he brings to even the most familiar passages. He brings St. Luke’s Gospel to life with contagious, boyish enthusiasm. And he makes of it a riveting dramatic experience.”
William Mootz
Louisville Courier-Journal

“The words of the evangelist are given life and humanity by Bruce Kuhn. [He] portrays it with a relaxed skill that never turns coy or smirky. There’s a missionary fervor to Kuhn’s delivery that isn’t so much hellfire and damnation as it is hope and delight. He seems to discover the wonder and depth of each incident at the same instant we do.”
