Capital Stage tackles salvation and redemption in its latest production, “Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train” written by Stephen Adly Guirgis and directed by Stephanie Gularte.

The play follows Angel Cruz. When he was a child, Angel believed that Jesus hopped the “A” train to save his life. Now he is in 23-hour lockdown on Rikers Island, awaiting trial for killing a religious cult leader who got a grip on his best friend. His fellow inmate, Lucius, is a serial killer on death row who has found Christianity. He tries to convince Angel that God can save him; meanwhile, Angel’s lawyer says she can get him acquitted. What is the real way to salvation, and how is it defined?

The show is performed at the Delta King Theatre, 1000 Front St. in Sacramento. Previews are scheduled April 29 and 30, May 1, 4 and 5. Opening night is May 6 and the show runs Wednesdays through Sundays through May 22. For performance times, tickets and more information visit capstage.org.

  1. Cap Stage has put on some great productions in the past. Looking forward to seeing the play.

  2. I look forward to seeing it. I saw Reasons To Be Pretty last time. It wasn’t the best plot. Nothing that the theater did anything wrong, just the story plot wasn’t as good as I thought it’d be but I’m excited to see this one. I’m going tonight so, yay!
