Better Than I Expected
25 March 2016 | by newyorkranger16See all my reviews

I saw this production last night with the preconception that I was going to hate it (After all, I don't really like musicals). In fact, I presented it to my wife earlier in the day simply to make fun of it. A modern adaptation of the Gospels? How would that even work? And how could it not be ridiculous? However, the more I watched it the more I realized that it was actually pretty good.

I would not say that every performance was perfect, but I would say that they were all very good. Jencarlos and Daughtry were incredibly moving in every one of their performances. Seal was also fantastic.

The music they chose, especially for Jencarlos and Daughtry, was perfect. The lyrics were incredible in light of the scenes they were performing.

My only complaint is simply a matter of preference. I felt that the woman playing Mary was hard to relate to. She was a great singer, but I felt that her music choices were weak and that she simply did not look the part. However, nothing was technically wrong. She just isn't who I would have chosen for the role.

As you can probably tell, I do not review movies very often. I normally would like to spend more time writing something before I release it for public view, but I felt that it was important to get this out there as soon as possible. There are only two written reviews for this production. One loved it, one hated it. I am hoping that someone who felt the same way that I did would give the show a chance. I think you will like it.
