    ‘Bathing in Moonlight’ Tests a Priest and Boundaries

    Charles Isherwood

    September 19, 2016: A Roman Catholic priest faces what might be called a crisis of humanity, rather than a crisis of faith, in “Bathing in Moonlight,” the gauzy new play from Nilo Cruz, which is having its premiere here at the McCarter Theater Center, where Mr. Cruz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Anna in the Tropics” was also presented before moving to Broadway. Raúl Méndez plays Father Monroe, a priest who starts things off with a sermon, addressed to the audience, in which he shares an anecdote about a priest during World War II who expanded the boundaries of his church’s cemetery to include the grave of a soldier whose faith was unclear. “God wants us to remove barriers and walls,” Father Monroe says. “God wants us to extend the perimeters.”
