Fathom Events presents the musical feature film Easter Mysteries, the retelling of the Passion of Christ which is the last
twelve hours of his life and his resurrection. Easter Mysteries will arrive in theaters for one day only Tuesday, March 22,
2016 at 7 p.m. in 300 selected theaters across the country through Digital Broadcast Network. Easter Mysteries star Wallace
Smith (Broadway's "Lion King" as Simba, "Godspell") as Jesus and Tony Award Nominee Phillip Boykin (Freedom,
Top Five) as Caiaphas.
"I was not apprehensive in the least," said Three-time Tony Award winning producer Ron Simons (Blue Caprice)
when asked about tackling a Biblical story about Jesus Christ found in the New Testament. "I was concerned
treading into new territory. There have been movies and plays on the subject. What I really
really love about this film is it brought...the people accessible. What did that do to
him (Caiaphas) personally...he was a human being that had to make some tough decisions."
The music and lyrics to the musical feature film,
Easter Mysteries, was written by Tony Award winning Broadway producer John O'Boyle. The prolific Easter story
also stars Stephen Lee Anderson as Herod; Erin David as Mary Magdalene; Kevin Earley as
Peter; Benjamin Howes as Thomas; P.J. Griffith as Judas and Michael X. Martin as Pilate.
When Ron I asked how he was
picked to be the producer he said, "The composer/writer, a Broadway producer, we worked
on a project together. We were in Florida...he asked me am I on to be executive producer...I was starting to do things
(a producer would do). I brought on the company that did the poster. I brought the strategies.
So we decided...I was actually producing it. In small projects we're big minded but with
small prestige and money. We wear a lot of hats."
The Simons Says Entertainment and Fathom Events presentation
is directed by Danny Goldstein and the music is directed by Milton Granger. After the film
is presented there will be a panel of Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders discussing the impact of the Passion story
on the world.
