Tim Rice and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber are BACK, with Laurence Connors rock restored remake of the original 1971 Broadway hit!

I had the honor of going to see this production courtesy of showfilmfirst. And boy was I glad I did!

From the off you know this isn’t going to be your usual Jesus Christ Superstar as Judas (Tim Minchin) blasts out the opening song with heavy guitar solos and big drum intros.

The large screen at the back of the stage is the focal point of the action and is used in such a fantastic manner. Showcasing the occupy London movement, introducing a newsreel, Video reporting and even a fantastic, bordering on cheesy, poke at modern reality TV in a TV style vote off. This was definitely a crowd favorite as it starred British Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles.

The production spared no expense with its wowing ways. It had gathered a lot of focus and attention with its controversial finding of Jesus (Ben Forster) through reality TV show Jesus Christ Superstar. He’s certainly a superstar in the making and definitely a favorite with the girls in the audience. He hit every note perfectly and his voice blew us away. Yet he was not the star of the show that accolade was left to Tim Minchin.

The Aussie born comedian famed for his quick wit and piano skills was supremely cast and magnificent in delivery. You hung on every word he would deliver, his range of pitch and tones would leave a seasoned pro proud of there performance. His expressions and movements lead you to feel and believe every movement he would make. Bringing the audience to tears on more than one occasion.

Ben was ably supported by a spice girl (Mel C), but she is so much more than that now. That is now a mere shadow in her past and this is possibly the final nail in that transformation. Despite an early Ankle injury she soldiered through. Here tattoo laden body and Rasta matted hair really helped her claim the role of Mary Magdalene but her vocal range and style made it her own.

The comic relief was supplied in the form of a velour suit and British radio one favorite Chris Moyles, and he was a real crowd favorite, adored by the strong crowd at the fantastic o2 arena London, the worlds most visited music venue.

This modern take will have crowds talking and smiling all the way home. The arena tour is off to an amazing start and when you get a chance to see it grab it with two hands, you wont be disappointed!
