About the show:

Love will get you every time. That is what one charismatic con-man is about to find out. The “Reverend” Jonas Nightingale an electrifying performer and con artist, is travelling with his ministry when his bus breaks down in a small Kansas town. The part-time reverend and full-time crook pitches a tent and invites the locals to a revival. The sheriff, a woman named Marla McGowan, is determined to stop Jonas from separating the townspeople from their money, and Jonas’ real challenge arises when he meets the sheriff and her son. A gospel honky-tonk filled show, come see what happens when love forces an ultimate cynic to take a real leap of faith.
