Vow, a Broadway play with a strong pro-faith and pro-life
message, has received acclaim from critics across New York.
The play has been called “engrossing and enlivening,” “gripping,” and
“heart-stopping” by critics, while the Star Ledger said that “There’s
no denying the emotional power of this miraculous story!"
One prominent local figure who has proved to be one of the biggest fans
of the production is the newly installed Archbishop Timothy Dolan, who
has praised the show in the highest terms.
“This is the best sermon I’ve heard in a long time,” he said.
“All I can say is hallelujah.”
“To think that there was a play that vividly expressed something that I
felt for a long time; namely, that religion, spirituality, faith,
brings forth what is most noble and uplifting in the human project.
"So often we see the tragedy of the abuse of religion today. Here, to
have a play, that brings forth the reality of religion and faith,
prayer, trust bringing forth reconciliation, forgiveness, solidarity,
life, love, hope ... to see a play do that, I thought, I need to hear
that, and I think the world needs to hear that. I was not disappointed."
The play centers on the true story of a Catholic Polish woman in World
War II who hides a group of Jews in the basement of a German general’s
house, for whom she was acting as a housekeeper. When one of the Jews
gets pregnant, a decision has to be made.
But on top of the solid message of the play, In Support of Life is
offering to donate 15% of each ticket purchased through them to a
pro-life organization. The donation does not increase the cost of the
ticket and a pro-life group is given a donation.
