We always knew that Pope John Paul II had a thing for costumes. But who knew he was a closet playwright, too? Storm Theater did. And starting May 16, the company’s “Karol Wojtyla Theater Festival” sheds a little holy light on his dramatic works by resurrecting his plays: The Jeweler’s Shop and Our God’s Brother. Religious themes abound. Skintight devil costumes? Not too many. Temp workers, waiters, teachers — add another career to your list for frustrated artists: the spokesperson of God. —Drew Pisarra
