Queen Esther LIVE! Meet the Cast

.

After three years in development, the spectacular brand-new stage production QUEEN ESTHER was set to premiere in Lancaster, PA this past March. Just as the premiere was taking place, the world came to a screeching halt and like many others, Sight & Sound Theatres went dark. More than 200 shows were cancelled with 500,000 ticket holders unable to experience the show.

Now, Esther’s timely story will come to life like never before for ONE NIGHT ONLY! The brand-new original stage production will make its worldwide debut – exclusively on the new streaming platform, Sight & Sound TV. It will stream LIVE this Friday, September 4th, at 7pm ET, with encore showings on Sept 5 and 6 (see times below)

With cameras covering the theater from every angle, including on stage and behind the curtain, audiences will experience a live Sight & Sound show like never before, giving them the best seat in the house for every spectacular moment. The live event will include a 30-minute pre-show and a 20-minute intermission, with exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews and a sneak peek at how the production was created.

Before the COVID shut everything down RISEN had the opportunity to fly to Lancaster and see the incredible biblical story live on stage. Plus we sat down with Jessica Brown, who plays Queen Esther and Justin Mazzella, who plays King Xerxes, about the timeliness of the story, the strength of Esther, identity, influence and purpose.
