By Pope John Paul II, translated by Boleslaw Taborski,

The most widely produced of the plays by Pope John Paul II, The Jeweler's Shop made its Off Broadway debut in 1994, is a poetic drama exploring the aspects of human existence expressed through love and marriage.



Talented Readers Theatre cast members deliver the dialogue using vocal intonation, facial expression and limited physical movement, with scripts in hand.  On a professional level, many playwrights and/or composers and lyricists of musicals hold similar readings of their work for potential financial backers. Directors look upon this form of theatre as a way to broaden their ability to reach out and “test the waters” in different styles of theatre and/or bring stories which, for various reasons, may not be suitable or logistically possilble to produce on stage.
