Jesus Christ Superstar

Caught this Alyque Padamsee production of Jesus Christ Superstar in Bombay this year. Had head of it since I was a child, listened to songs from it being sung live in the middle of the night. So was very keen to see it, even though the ticket rates were atrocious.

Was well worth it. The special effects were great. It was a true show. The rousing music showed Jesus in a different light, as a man. Wonder what a similar musical about our gods would be like, if it ever saw the light of day.

Have been a Webber fan since I saw Phantoms of the Opera. The lyrics rang true here too. In many cases the diction was a little off, though. The finale with the assembly of the cross on the stage was breathtaking.
