New Life Fine Arts Musical Theater presents ‘Celestial City’
Concord – “And as I slept, I dreamed a dream.” Once there was scarcely a home in England where these words would not be recognized as part of the opening lines of the world’s best-selling spiritual quest story, “The Pilgrim’s Progress.”
New Life Fine Arts Musical Theater’s original adaptation of this classic story, “Celestial City: The Story of John Bunyan and His ‘Pilgrim’s Progress,’” is coming to the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts, 40 Stow St., Concord, with 13 performances Sept. 22 through Oct. 7.
Hailed as “the ancestor to the English novel,” “The Pilgrim’s Progress” has never been out of print. For more than 250 out of its 334 years in publication, it has been the world’s best-selling book, next to the Bible. It has been translated into more than 200 languages. It is the story of Everyman, embraced by people of all nations and it is an adventure story for audiences of all ages.
