Good reviews for musical about leaving faith.

The musical TJ and Mr. Oaksite, which deals with a young woman abandoning faith and dealing with mental illness (and which also has a character fashioned after yours truly :D), has debuted to wonderful reviews!

But lest you think this is heavy philosophy, Wilkinson’s story humanizes the debate. Two sisters — the T.J. of the title and Alaina — are on opposite sides of the God debate. Their differences are exacerbated when T.J., who has lost the faith she once had, joins a college society of religious skeptics led by Zach and Dil — and then starts having visions of the mysterious Mr. Oaksite.

I wrote about the show last month.  You can still get in to see the show if you’re down in Orlando (assuming it hasn’t sold out).  Remaining dates are…

Mon. 5/20
Thu. 5/23
Fri. 5/24
Sat. 5/25
Sun. 5/26

I’m working with the composer, Ned Wilkinson, on recording my favorite song from the show and releasing it on itunes to benefit Skepticon.  Stay tuned for that.  🙂
