Back by popular demand, “The Book of Luke” is returning to KC for seven encore performances, beginning 2 p.m. Sunday, March 24. Performances will run through March 30 in Van Cliburn Auditorium in the Turk Fine Arts Center.

“The Book of Luke” is a two-man show by former Texas Shakespeare Festival company actors Meaghan Sullivan and Matthew Simpson. The two actors have memorized half of the book of Luke. The show consists of the performers reciting the parables from memory while acting out the different characters involved. Most of the entries are from the New International Version of the Bible; however, the story of Christ’s birth is taken from the traditional King James Version.

The show runs about 80 minutes, and tickets cost $25. Groups of 25 or more can purchase tickets at a discounted price of $20. This show serves as a fundraiser for the TSF.

More information regarding the show can be found at TexasShakespeare.com or by contacting John Dodd, TSF managing director, at 903-983-8119.
