Interview

Media Coverage

“Amalgamating disparate conventions of viewership, and reimagining belief, the work crafts a strangely generous experience of what a play, or a messiah, can be. Both assert their own imperfection with charming honesty and wit.”

Fabien Maltais-Bayda,Canadian Theatre Review, Été 2018

“Cox-O’Connell’s direction is boldly unnatural and striking in its big-move simplicity. (…) If anything can prove that something can be both artificial and divine, it’s cardboard and tape, and Other Jesus.

Kelly Bedard, Myentertainmentworld.ca, 2017-11-11

“It would be easy to mistake this funny and thoughtful piece of experimental theatre for a meditation on theology, Christianity and faith. But it goes much deeper than that. (…) Fun, cartoon-like crowd scenes, tongue-in-cheek comedic moments and character’s symbolic hand gestures give the show a dreamlike quality.”

Jordan Bimm, Now, 2017-05-10

“The optics of Other Jesus (…) are unexpected and quite stunning. […] Kudos to the design team.”

Carly Maga, The Star, 2017-05-09
