Jesus Christ Superstar is a musical spectacular, containing the story of the last few days of Jesus. In this version of the film, the director has decided to put a twist and make everything modern and high-tec.
I never went to see this show at the theatre, didn't get the opportunity, but knew the music and saw snatches on TV over the years.
I watched the Arena Tour on TV - what a truly wonderful experience. I couldn't take my eyes off. It was now a proper rock musical - I haven't been so enthralled or impressed since I went to see Hair in 1969, but this surpassed that by miles. Well done, a wonderful show with excellent performances; Tim Minchin was just superb, as was Mel C, and Ben Forster was so powerful at times it hurt. The ensemble cast were wonderful too.
Changing the time worked very well, there are parallels with today which you cannot ignore and which made it even more dramatic. The set design was superb, the costume quite stunning.
Yes, I enjoyed it! I just wanted to be there soaking it all up!
