During Holy Week, a new musical theater depiction of the Easter story will hit the big screen at six Twin Cities movie theaters for a special one-night showing March 22.

According to a news release, “Easter Mysteries” is a Passion play for modern audiences and features veteran Broadway actors and singers from stage productions such as “Les Miserables,” “Mary Poppins” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” Directed by Daniel Goldstein, “Easter Mysteries” was staged and filmed before a live audience, according to its co-producer, Denver-based Fathom Events.

The 7 p.m. showings will be at Carmike Cinemas in Apple Valley, Regal Cinemas in Eagan, AMC in Eden Prairie, Regal Cinemas in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis Showplace ICON at The West End in St. Louis Park, and Marcus Theatres in Rosemount.

The music, libretto and lyrics are by Tony Award-winning Broadway producer John O’Boyle with musical arrangements and music direction by Milton Granger.

Included with the film is an interfaith panel discussion with prominent Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders discussing the production and its ability to affect interfaith relations.
