Taking the Jesus Pill, showing in a limited engagement on Wednesday nights at King King, is decidingly Angeleno. It is a rock-goth-opera promoted by Polly Parsons of the fabulous Amoeba and at the helm is Charles Terrell, with a cult following all his own. He writes, directs and stars in this revival that raises true questions about what can happen when a preacher goes too far. Taking the Jesus Pill also raises the hemline with gorgeous dancers and a setting worthy of a few lauds itself.

King King is the perfect date night. It's the perfect place to go with friends and spend an hour watching a performance that hundreds more in Los Angeles should take the time to see before they start criticizing the "lack of theater" in LA.

Tickets are available at Smart Tix and cost $20. The doors are at 8pm and the show is at 9pm. We do recommend arriving early, as with a lof of King King shows, seating is limited and while there are not any bad seats in the house - and standing room only is good fun, if you want to sit, get there promptly my friend. Also, know that people dress the part so do your bit to be a part of the magic. Either go churchy or dressed as the devil but have fun with it!
