'Leap of Faith' to jump to Broadway
Raul Esparza and 'Leap of Faith' to finally make the jump to Broadway in April
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Someone on Broadway is finally taking a leap of faith on "Leap of Faith."

Producers announced Thursday that the much-delayed musical based on the 1992 film starring Steve Martin as a shady preacher will start performances April 3 at the St. James Theatre.

The show had its world premiere in late 2010 at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles and has been a work in progress ever since. It boasts music by Alan Menken and will be directed by Christopher Ashley.



The Broadway version will again star Raul Esparza, who plays Jonas Nightingale, a fraudulent faith healer ready to scam residents of a dusty, down-and-out Kansas town.

The cast will also feature Jessica Phillips from "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" and Kendra Kassebaum of "Wicked."
