    The MAT presents Barry Smith in "Jesus in Montana"

    Presented by at Millibo Art Theatre

    January 12 - January 22, 2012


    The MAT presents Barry Smith in

    “Five stars! A devastatingly significant work, a scintillating turn of phrase and a way with a punch line that is jaw-dropping. You must see Jesus in Montana.” – Montreal Gazette

    The MAT welcomes back the very funny Barry Smith in Jesus in Montana, the true story of a young man’s quest to discover truth, spiritual fulfillment and ultimately, himself. This inventive “Modern Monologue” explores the universal nature of searching for one’s place in the world and questioning one’s very existence. Why am I here? Where do I fit in? Jesus in Montana reveals—with frank humor—how even the most bizarre, misguided quest can be a worthwhile journey.
    Winner of the 2005 New York International Fringe Festival Outstanding Solo Show Award, JESUS IN MONTANA is a timely and revealing comedy about a young man’s personal road trip to discover truth, spiritual fulfillment and ultimately, himself

    More about JESUS IN MONTANA
    In the early 90s, writer/performer Barry Smith found himself in a bizarre doomsday cult, living in the basement of a man who claimed to be the return of Jesus. After a few years of earnestly following “Jesus in Montana,” Smith grew disillusioned (and tired of waiting for the oft-promised Apocalypse) and left the cult. Then he wrote a comedy about it!
    This absolutely true, multimedia, award-winning comedy offers an irreverent glimpse into the world of religious fanaticism from one who’s been there and back. With pictures! Using his signature “Modern Monologue” style, Smith uses projected photos, old audio, home movies and hilariously simplistic graphs to further explain how one gets
    into—and out of—such a bizarre situation.

    . “Think Spalding Gray and
    David Sedaris with a whole lot
    of audio and visual aids.”
    – The Aspen Times

    “Reinvents the solo
    confessional memoir.”
    – Edmonton Journal

    “Funny and gently thought
    – The New York Times

    “Smith’s delivery is fantastic—he’s quick, dryly comical, and most importantly, authentic.”
    – CBC Winnipeg

    “Smith is most definitely a traditional humorist in the same vein as David Sedaris or Garrison Keillor. This piece is hilarious and a must-see piece of work.”
    – nytheatre.com

    “Smith is an affable storyteller, and his show is both funny and gently thought-provoking.”
    – The New York Times
