This Beautiful City

Written by Steven Cosson and Jim Lewis, Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman

Directed by LM Attea; Music Director: Jake Aebly

"This Beautiful City" investigates the growth of the evangelical movement in Colorado Springs. While The Civilians were conducting interviews with people involved with or affected by the mega-church movement and the battle over gay marriage, the scandal broke about New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard, which shook the entire city of Colorado Springs, providing the play's creators with an unprecedented opportunity to capture an important event as it was taking place, and providing the people of Colorado Springs with the opportunity to express their opinions and concerns as those events unfolded. "This Beautiful City" is a fascinating and timely look at faith and how it affects the American landscape.
