She was one of the most misunderstood figures in the Bible.  “Magdalene” is a musical story of the confident, colorful harlot adored by everyone around her.  Men wanted to be with her.  Women wanted to BE her. 

This hidden gem written by Sal Ponti was first produced in 1983 and enjoyed a two-year run in Los Angeles.  Unseen for nearly 40 years, “Magdalene: The Musical” has been lovingly recreated by Genesis Opera Theatre as a musical comedy with a heart of gold.

Director Cynthia Leigh has put together a stellar cast with talent from all over Southern California.  The characters from Magdalene’s world represent men and women from all walks of life, and how they’re impacted by the life-changing world events surrounding them.

The story is riveting.  The music is unforgettable.  “Magdalene: The Musical” is not to be missed.
