Last few chances to see the musical hit JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at Hart House Theatre. The audience really loves this one, and there’s a number of reasons you should see it before it closes, on Saturday, January 31. The cast is full of talent and energy and the audience is a mix of the very young and the boomer “nostalgia crowd”.
But one really ought to catch David Michael Moote as Jesus. He’s new to the theatre scene and his voice has undeniable power, range, and beauty. In fact, I suspect many of the young thought he WAS Jesus and couldn’t wait to get a “selfie” with the Messiah after the show.
Rather than discuss the pros and cons of this production, I really think you should just go. The music, dancing, and the sheer force of the cast will grab you. Indulge yourself. You’ll have a good time!
