I've seen about 10 different productions of JCSS and this is on for my favorites....I'm also excited and nervous for the LIVE show on NBC this Sunday.
I was excited to see a modern version of such a powerful lively musical, but the only thing lively is the lights. The acting is bland and they seem to be more concerned with sounding good then really putting in the emotions which is a major part of this piece.
Melanie C offers a gritty and refreshing performance - and the other cast soars. LOVED IT.
I've seen this show several times and except for the very first production (which happened to be at a college), it was more opera than rock. This production ROCKS. Updated with current looks and scenery without loosing the integrity of the show. Love the spare set and how they used it.
A good solid performance. I recently saw a local theater group perform this musical. I got to relive it. Then to see this performance - I had the foundation and this dramatic large scale production just reinforced it further. Its still relevant!
Ben Forster's astounding performance soars in a production worthy of the score. A gorgeous voice, with a powerful range of affect. The tempi in this production allow the piece to move. The visuals match the energy of dancing and singing. Every voice from Giovanni Spano's Simon to the electric charge of Tim Minchin is riveting. Can't imagine a more compelling performance from any cast. This is a must-watch, true to Rice and Webber and to the overwhelming sense of tragedy the story and music conveys. Virtuosity pours from every guitarist, keyboard player, and drummer involved. An incredible experience.
I thought it was enjoyable, I never really liked the show before but I actually enjoyed it more as a concert.
Although they all seem like they were contestants on a tv talent competition. This arena version lacks ANY of the brilliance of the 1973 film version which was made well within the fabulousness of the 1960's & 70's. The director of this arena version staged it no better than a high school production. See the film! Watch closely the choreography...wardrobe...and ACTING! this arena cast didn't know the first thing about acting. It's like they were directed to "make everything as dramatic as you can!" Over-acting is what i call it.
