Jesus Christ Superstar Playhouse

I think that this show can really be summed up in just one word: Wow! Out of the many shows I have been to see and review, there aren’t many that leave you totally speechless at the end – but this one did!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a show (like Joseph) that has been done up and down the country for many, many years, and though it’s a show that you know what you are going to get, what you get lots of great music and incredible acting!

Glenn Carter – who plays Jesus, does so with so much passion that at one point when he is in the garden of Gethsemane, you really didn’t expect such a high level of song to come from this guy – utterly amazing! The same can be said for both the actors who play Jesus’s Mother Mary and Judas Iscariot – again such incredible acting – well done to all!

As a Christian myself, this show really has left me with food for thought – having just celebrated one of the biggest events ever known in human history on Sunday – to then going to watch a play based on what actually happened in the run up to that event – it really does put it in perspective for me. Does it do the same for you?

As always – everyone at the Playhouse was on top form – I really do take my hat off to you guys – it takes a lot to put on a production as big as this and you nailed it! So well done to all involved! After all these years, and all these productions: Jesus Christ Superstar – still a show not to be missed!
