These days, the Faith Healer is viewed as one of Brian Friel’s most revered creations, but when it debuted in 1979, it was an embarrassing flop that fizzled after just 20 performances. A Broadway revival with Ralph Fiennes in 2006 gave a significant boast to the play’s prestige. Through March 2 the Next Act Theatre is presenting its own production of this nuanced drama about a washed-up faith healer looking to get his mojo back. This afternoon they stage a 2 p.m. performance in the Off-Broadway Theatre.
