Instead of the Sharks and Jets, it's the shepherds and townies. And Maria doesn't bring the two groups together by pointing out the futility of street violence. It's Mary, who solves all the town's ills, and mankind's, by bringing into the world the Prince of Peace.
'The Bethlehem Project' is a play full of raucous joy. Its theme is simple: We all want to point out differences, but at heart were all the same. We want to belong and not be demeaned.
