Fun musical depicting the life of Christ
5 September 1999 | by (Columbia, SC) – See all my reviews

This is a fun show that tells the "Greatest Story Ever Told" set to bluegrass music. Tom Key does an excellent job of depicting many Gospel characters. Jesus is born in Gainsville, GA. and he and his band of followers end up going to the "Convention" in Atlanta. The music was written by Harry Chapin right before his death. You will want to share this with your friends.
