The Fiery Furnace

In Biblical times when the Babylonians occupied Israel, four Hebrew friends afraid for their lives, pretend to be anything but who they are in order to escape the wrath of a tyrannical and megalomaniacal king. Given an opportunity by the king’s military captain to interpret the king’s mysterious dream the friends rise to the occasion and subsequently rise in his court. However, when the king requires them to bow down before his golden god they are forced to stand up and be their true selves or become the minions the king wants them to be. A furnace of flames awaits their decision.

The Fiery Furnace, a new rock musical by MacGuffin Theatre and Film Company’s, Artistic Director, John Rea features glam rock, boy band pop, reggae and blues/folk music. The set features a huge golden head and flags of fire. The King and his entourage wear glittery Lady Gaga attire while the Hebrew folk sport down to earth 1960′s clothing. This ancient story of God’s love for his people is brought to life in a hip post modern style.
