Cotton Patch gospels

 Thanks so much for introducing me to Clarence Jordan.  My pastor has loaned me a copy of Jordan’s “translation” of Matthew and John and, because of the intro by Tom Key, I am listening to Harry Chapin’s soundtrack now…  My musical and literary education were sorely lacking.  Is the musical still being performed on occasion?  We have a small “pocket theater” that would be a perfect venue for a mini-revival…  And, more importantly, has anyone attempted to update the Cotton Patch gospel (or the musical) for inner-city and third-world present realities and contemporary rhythms?
