PLAY ABOUT "GAY JESUS" CANCELED

          NEW YORK (CWNews.com) - A Manhattan theatre last Friday canceled the production of a controversial play depicting a homosexual Jesus by award-winning playwright Terence McNally, citing security concerns.

          The Manhattan Theatre Club said it would not stage "Corpus Christi" this fall. The announcement of the production had elicited outrage and concern from religious groups. McNally had no comment on the cancellation.

          McNally, who has won three Tony Awards for his plays "Master Class," "Kiss of the Spider Woman," and "Love! Valour! Compassion!" was nominated this year for his book of the musical "Ragtime."
