Yes, the musical backdrop to watching a self-absorbed priest try to save all of Londons wandering pilgrims in the 80s new wave musical The Gift at the MosArt Theatre is none other than Depeche Mode and the Cure. Depeche Mode songs Personal Jesus, Peace, Enjoy the Silence, and Wrong and the Cures Pictures of You are sung throughout this tale, written by Ouida Williams. The dark and stormy odyssey starts out when our knight in gothic armor, Bishop Drake. sets sail on a vessel to Paradise to save humanity. The folks from MosArt gave us a sneak peak on the show: Blood, rape, murder on every street
evil is upon us! [Drake] shouts as he raises his mast against wind and sea. Also, during the voyage, a drunk womanizer named Aaron Lightfoot stumbles onto Drakes holy vessel, leaving the drunkard no choice but to join in on the journey to Paradise. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets cost $12. Call 561-337-OPOD, or visit mosarttheatre.com.
