Simon Callow brings ‘The Man Jesus’ to life at Newport’s Riverfront

Following the successes of his previous one-man shows, The Mystery of Charles Dickens and Being Shakespeare, Simon Callow is all set to explore the story of ‘The Man Jesus’ for one night only at The Riverfront Theatre on Saturday 20 September.

The world-renowned actor will delve into the life of a man who inspired the history of the world, examining key moments and famous biblical stories through the eyes of the people who knew him. With every aspect of Jesus’ life being delivered with Callow’s signature wit and wisdom, he ensures that the story’s tyrants, traitors and madmen are brought spectacularly to life in a production that is extraordinary and inspiring for people of all faiths and none.

Directed by the critically-acclaimed Joseph Alford, ‘The Man Jesus’ premiered to excellent reviews at Belfast’s Lyric Theatre earlier this year, and is now ready to create a lasting impact as it embarks on its strictly limited UK tour.

‘The Man Jesus’ will be descending on The Riverfront for its only performance in Wales on Saturday 20 September at 7.30pm. Ticket prices begin at £19.50 and can be purchased from the Box Office, at or by calling 01633 656757.
