Life’s intricate trials and glorious victories are exhibited in the uplifting JOBE The Musical, opening on Thursday at Hibernian Hall. The performance, presented by CommonHouse Theater and Productions, Inc. and Madison Park Development Corporation, is under the masterful direction of Vincent Ernest Siders, an IRNE Award nominee for Best Direction for The Family Beef Feast Fest.
Siders, a Dorchester resident, is the lead instructor of Youth Underground at Central Square Theater. JOBE the Musical is the second show that Vincent has directed at Hibernian Hall. The first was To Hell with This Village in the summer of 2013.
JOBE The Musical is an adaptation of the biblical book of Job and the genius work of playwright, Milton Wright, who is also the actor who plays the role of Reverend Dr. Rutherford D. Thompson.
“JOBE The Musical brings people together, when you mention Jobe people are excited and inspired,” said Milton Wright. “Years of strength and elder vision have been poured into the most fulfilling and impactful work of my life. Jobe has changed my life and the lives of others.”
