Let’s put on a show

Today at 7:30 is the annual Good Friday Passion Play at my church, St. John-St. Matthew-Emanuel Lutheran in Park Slope.

This play is more proof that Brooklyn is just a big small town. Every member of the congregation who possesses even a shred of theatrical talent is pressed into service. And they serve with gusto. Soloists solo, children clap, dancers dance, the choir sings, musicians play, and people who never show up for anything else drop by the church on a Friday night to watch.

I will be there, but you won’t see me on stage. I’m reprising my role as spotlight operator.
