The Story: A love affair between a devout rodeo clown and a hellraising rancher leads to Graceland, prophetic sex, and cows that rise from the dead in what nytheatre.com called “a charming and unconventional look at the nature and definition of belief.

for every Baby Jesus that’s shoved up a cow’s butt, every magi made to fellate a mule, there’s a serious message about faith and forgiveness, too.

Aaron Riccio, That Sounds Cool

Riding the Bull finds the sweet spot between cynicism and piety, giving us a stunningly imaginative comedy that never loses sight of its own heart

Pete Boisvert, nytheatre.com

It’s a remarkable play with a distinctive vision of America
