ABOUT THE SHOW:
Leonardo da Vinci has been commissioned to create a mural of “The Last Supper.” It is his first attempt at painting in ten years. He fears he has lost his artistic vision by squandering his gifts.
An angel/muse inspires him to invoke the Apostles and their last meal with Jesus. By discovering what each was thinking and feeling at the moment of crisis, Leonardo confronts his own betrayal and learns that through love and faith he can rediscover the vision of divine inspiration and the purpose of life.
