'JB' at the Center in Rhinebeck

From the Poughkeepsie Journal:

The Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? For there is no one like him on Earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil."

"That is because you protect him and bless the work of his hands. But if you remove your protection from Job, he will curse you," challenged Satan.

And with that challenge, God gave Satan the opportunity to test Job.

This biblical story is the basis for the play "JB," which opened Thursday at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck. Produced by the Justice for All Speakers Forum, "JB" will run through this holiday weekend.

" 'JB' is a modern comment on the biblical 'Book of Job, " said David Pettit, spokesman for the Forum. "The drama unfolds in a kind of symbolic circus where all the timeless dramas of the world might take place."

the show is onstage next weekend at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck
