About "THE ANSWER - THE MUSICAL"

Just as Jesus Christ Superstar, Godspell and Rent had an impact on society in their day, THE ANSWER provides a powerful and encompassing experience for today's culture with its message of human compassion.

THE ANSWER begins with a character in the form of a spirit personifying the passage of time welcoming the audience to times beginning. The spirit takes us through creation using film as the means of experiencing that beginning up to the day before September 11, 2001. Then with multi-media magic, the spirit transforms the audience back 2000 years, and then back to the present.

The spirit tells the story of the prophets; the anointed ones, the ones who loved humanity, the ones who forgave.


In its full form, a cast of 20 performers, singing, dancing and acting along with a live band of 10 musicians who are integrated with the cast, take the audience through a contemporary approach to the eternal messages of love, forgiveness and peace. The audience then experiences the actor who represents the prophet of peace as if he was here today amongst us.

The hard hitting music of THE ANSWER helps the audience get in touch with the relevance of the messages of the past in dealing with serious issues of modern day. As they hear the contemporary music styles of today as well as view images and film of events of modern times, the audience is challenged with questions of what we all need to do to respond to the message of peace.

By the end of the production, many answers are given as well as the most important one of all, The Answer, the eternal truth ---- love.


THE ANSWER engages musicians from 18 different countries - emphasizing the importance of cultural exchange and participation.

A Decade of Creation

THE ANSWER - THE MUSICAL began when musicians and colleagues Christina Dupré and Lorenzo Salvagni came together at a castle near Latina Italy and began discussing the telling of a story. They decided to emphasize the messages of love, peace, forgiveness and hope, and involve as many different cultures as possible in its creation. The concept of THE ANSWER was born.


Shortly after that time, Christina and David Thomas, along with Father Walter Hyclak, began shaping a script. Christina wrote music and traveled to several different studios in different countries to record with artists from many countries.


The Esprit Entertainment Board was established to organize and help spread the THE ANSWER throughout the world.

Christina traveled to Italy, Spain, Israel, France and across the USA with David Thomas to record soundtracks as well as film, on location. In the process, musicians from 18 different countries were involved and performed on the soundtracks. At the same time the script was being developed in four languages; Spanish, English, French and Italian.


In 2011, Christina met Paco Aranda in Spain. They began developing the Spanish version of THE ANSWER. Locally (in the Cleveland, Ohio area) recording artist and internationally known guitarist Neil Zaza and internationally known bassist Dave McDougald joined the project and helped mold THE ANSWER sound. In Nashville, both Phil Keaggy and Tommy Wiggins contribute to the project. They have also helped mold THE ANSWER sound. Marcelo Ramos, a cellist and conductor from Brazil, also participates in THE ANSWER sound. People of different cultures coming together, working together and performing together truly exemplified the true message of THE ANSWER.
