Passion Play needs an editor

“Turning what some dub “the greatest story ever told” into a sometimes banal soap opera, Sarah Ruhl’s ‘Passion Play’ at Yale Rep slights both sides of that divide in revealing gaps between the mystical and the real. While never less than compelling, the three-part, three-and-a-half-hour evening sinks under its own weight. Despite a superb physical production, excellent acting and imaginative directing, what it most needs is an editor.”
