Excellent show
8 August 2013 | by bigmarksnellingSee all my reviews

Firstly, I have to say I would have seen at least 10 versions of the show, plus, of course, the movie. I also went to see the Arena spectacular at the brand-new Perth Arena. It was brilliant. I thought the 3 leads were totally brilliant, in particular Tim Minchin, who is a Perth boy. The DVD didn't disappoint either, and, to my musically educated mind, I felt that Ben Forster was absolutely brilliant, I thought Tim was fabulous, and I felt Mel Chisholm stole the show. This was the best iteration of this show I have ever seen, and I have also performed in the house band on a couple of them as well. I have seen Gillan, thought he over-sang, the best until now was John Farnham, but Forster wins for me. I can't understand one or two of the reviewers here, one said it was too modern????? The story was in set in 33AD, they didn't have tanks, helmets or metal scaffolding then either, but it's always been a part of the charm of this show , the juxtaposition of the times. I loved it. In case you can't tell.
