On January 10, 2003 the Daily News reported that "it took Sarah Brockus and 21 colleagues about three months to interview 120 New Yorkers about their religious beliefs and practices and another three months to turn the conversations into a play called 'Same Difference'... 'And that's what we learned,' says Brockus, the work's director and inspiration. 'That in all the important ways, Christians, Jews and Muslims have got so much in common that it adds up to, well, the same difference'... The one-act production, subtitled 'N.Y.C. Faith Stories in Words, Music & Dance,' opened an 11-performance run Tuesday night - it closes Jan. 19 - at the West End Theatre, in the United Methodist Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew on the upper West Side."
