"The Christians is neither an indictment of Christianity nor a pious parade of religious platitudes. That makes it a potential bridge in these polarized meet somewhere in the middle."   Charlotte Observer

"It was a wonderful play. It stayed with me for days as I pondered its meaning and relevance in this current climate. The performances were truly exceptional and the music was inspiring."  Audience member Joan Morrell Ballard

"Thank you for holding up a mirror and asking 'why do you believe what you believe?' - and for discussing (it) with us."
Audience member Rick Norwood
