Musical Creator Completes 13 Days Of Prayer & Fasting For Future Production On Broadway

Peter G. James Sinclair , the creator of the musical ‘The Cross & The Switchblade’ has just completed 13 days of praying and fasting as he prepares to take it to Broadway in New York.

Between the 16th and 29th January, Peter G. James Sinclair, the creator of ‘The Cross & The Switchblade – The Musical’ spent a period of 13 days praying and fasting with his direct focus on his proposed future Broadway production.

When asked why he was doing this, Peter responded, ‘Prayer and fasting is a principle laid down in the Bible that is explained as being something that Christians should do on a regular basis. One of the benefits is that it reminds you who is in control.’ And Peter added, ‘And that’s certainly not me.’

During the period of fasting and prayer he focussed on….

1. The future audience

2. The future producer

3. The theatre in New York

4. The future director and the team who will work closely to help Americanize the work so this is relevant to the New York audience.

And why 13 days? Peter answered, ‘It’s been 13 years since I first dreamed of staging my professional musical theater piece, and so I fasted and prayed one day for each year that it’s taken me to arrive at this point.’

One unique aspect of this 13 day period was that Peter recorded a daily video blog which allowed him to share with his growing fan base his key thoughts throughout the whole process. Each day a new video was posted on both his blog www.myblackpiano.com and his musical’s Facebook fan page.

‘I am by nature a private person, but one of the reasons I made this such a public event,’ Peter stated ‘was to help others to learn of the power and benefit of prayer and fasting – and of the importance of placing whatever projects you are working on in the hands of the one who made us all. Prayer and fasting is not just for priests or pastors. I’m a businessman, and this practice is just as important for me as I continue to work in the marketplace’.

Peter added, ‘I didn’t shut myself away from the world throughout the 13 days. I continued to run my businesses – but with a heightened focus on the one who is directing me with every step towards Broadway.’
