Jesus Christ Superstar (2010) – Wirral Champion

The big audience was gripped by the story, enjoyed the singing style, the stylised Herod with dancers and the very well characterised Pilate, the awesome priests, a jealous Judas, good apostles and a dignified, human yet godly Christ, and a beautiful, sweet-voiced Mary, but best of all, was the team work.  The pyramidal set -all steps- made immense physical demands as the crowds moved on them, whether in streets or the temple, or as part of the trial.  The cross was impressive, rising in the last scene, and there was immense sensitivity throughout.  The lighting makes its own statements with so many visible angled and coloured lights and some moments were pure artistry. 
The whole show was such a joyous success.  All congratulations!
