Stephen Adly Guirgis' critical and hilarious examination of the judicial system delivers the visceral thrills we expect in prison dramas. And not since David Mamet's heyday has there been such a lively and peppery use of the "f-bomb." Just when you thought you'd heard every combination possible in "The Sopranos" and "Oz," along comes "Jesus Hopped" with an opening sequence featuring the profanity in configurations that had even the most staid of audience members shrieking with laughter. The play contains the staples of prison dramas sadistic guards, crusty and burned-out lawyers, psychopathic inmates Williams, and "newbie" convicts who soon become hardened by the system and turns these conventions on their ears. Yet, in its rattling tin-cup heart, "Jesus Hopped" is about faith. It speaks searchingly of what makes a man good or bad, whether redemption is possible and necessary, and the urgency of prayer.
