INTERFAITH: The Musical...
"I think this musical is directly from the heart of God and is being channeled by Ruth Broyde Sharone, the most talented person I know."

INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCE (IONS)
"Wishing the music and lyrics would never end... INTERFAITH: The Musical is a highly important work -- a movement's call for international understanding and love amongst all people. It should be performed on all the Broadways of this world, and in every school, every mosque, synagogue and church. BRAVISSIMA!!!!!"
-Carol Soucek King, MFA, Ph.D.Founder, Salon for the Spiritually Creative Life
"The lyrics do justice to many faith traditions and dare to address existential concerns. I was profoundly moved and impressed by the lyrics: serious, yet witty and amusing. These songs are on par with (and remind me of) my two favorite musicals: Fiddler on the Roof and Hair."
-Revital Samekh Goldreich, Stained-Glass Artist
"Hilarious and true songs about a new age of interfaith and hybrid identities, which could bring more peace to this troubled earth. Be part of the solution and support this funny, moving and thought-provoking new musical. My kids fell in love with the songs, know most of the lyrics by heart and go around the house singing them."
-Yuval Ron, Oscar-winning composer/musician
"Never have I believed so strongly in an artistic expression as I do in this musical. The variety of songs, the catchy rhythms and the clever words draw us together in the Human Predicament. Instantaneously I knew I wanted to support this effort to build understanding and bring the world together into shared peace. I see this traveling throughout the world on major stages everywhere with rave reviews. Blessings, Ruth, on your creative brilliance. Thank you for bringing this to the world."
-Rev. Jan Chase, Unity Minister and Interfaith enthusiast
"Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics! That's what grabbed me the most about this musical. The music is written to allow the audience to understand and wrestle with the interfaith dialogues presented. Ruth gives it to us straight, but in the kindest, most positive way. She seems to say, "We all may experience life differently, but there is a way to get along! Really, there is!"
-Eric Jennings, Music Historian and Interfaith Minister

-Mary Anne Bennett, Entrepreneur

-Jan Chaffee, Interfaith activist
"The music and lyrics are timely, timeless, and fun--all qualities a good musical show must have. Equally important, the songs touch a common human cord. INTERFAITH: The Musical has a universal message and worldwide appeal like FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. It has the potential to transcend man-made boundaries and touch the soul. BRAVO!"
-Lael Belove, Founder YES Innerprizes/Yes Salon
"INTERFAITH: The Musical will reach you in places you didn't know you had; it will teach you, amuse you, and probably confuse you; it will inspire you and cause you to question as well as celebrate the great human tapestry we call FAITH in all its wisdom and weakness."
-Rev. Doris Davis, Interfaith Minister, Free-lance mystic
"The songs are dramatic, comical and poignant--in sum, deeply moving. We laughed and cried hearing songs with titles like: What If My Children Go Astray, Spiritual But Not Religious, Blasphemy, Why Can't Science and Religion Be Friends? and There Ain't No Monopoly on Spirit."
-Rev. Paul Chaffee, Editor, THE INTERFAITH OBSERVER
"The lyrics of INTERFAITH: The Musical are brilliant and the voices are terrific. Ruth, you are a gifted lyricist/producer and have created a heartfelt, witty, clever musical dialogue for all of us to enjoy."
-Maureen Cruise, Atheist, nurse and health activist
"Not only the melodies and the words are important and relevant to our time, but also the sense of humor that accompanies the musical. I am looking forward to seeing it on Broadway!"
-Era Thompson, Interfaith activist
"This is a truly inspired work of art, with its clever lyrics and wonderful, catchy tunes. Ruth manages with great wit and panache to capture both the excitement and the challenge of the contemporary interfaith landscape. As such, it deserves to have the broadest possible hearing on its way--hopefully-to Broadway. It is guaranteed to amuse, uplift and challenge its listeners, as Ruth does in person and through her interfaith work."
