Start off your Easter holiday by attending a performance of the Thorn, an active and passionate account of Jesus' life, fast-paced from creation to the resurrection. It's about as up-close and personal as you can get to going back in time and experiencing what Jesus did for us on a deeper, more visual level.

It includes pyrotechnics, martial arts, and gives personification to the temptations in the spiritual realm in the form of demons. If you bring children, here's what they say:

The Thorn is a fast-paced and intense portrayal of the passion of Jesus and may not be appropriate for some children. The Thorn ...
