Just when you thought the Bible may be getting old, 48 playwrights decide to get together and come up with a condensed radical retelling. Currently enjoying a limited run at the Flea, The Mysteries finds 54 actors from the theater’s resident company the Bats acting out a modernized version of the history of man’s salvation from the fall of Lucifer through and including Judgement Day. Yes, it’s long, 5 1/2 hours to be exact with two intermissions when dinner and dessert are served, but it’s totally worth it. The cast are bursting with energy and the production, which is directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, is riveting from start to finish. Among the playwrights who have contributed to the project are David Henry Hwang, Craig Lucas, Billy Porter, Lucas Hnath, and Ann Marie Healy, just to name a few. You’ll truly feel like you’ve gone to hell and back when the play concludes, but wow, what a glorious ride it is, complete with creative staging and glorious musical interludes. Note: there is nudity, and God is a bit of a psychopath.
