“Amazing Grace.” “The mortal sin is that it’s a musical without musicians — computer software somehow ‘plays’ the score — but that’s not all. The largely true but plodding melodrama of John Newton, the British slave trader who ultimately repented and wrote the famous hymn, is so slow-moving and cliched that you’d swap it for a windy sermon.” Read the review. Through Jan. 7 at the Museum of the Bible, 409 3rd St SW. Tickets $85-$100. Call 202-848-1600 or visit museumofthebible.org.
