Stratford: Jesus Christ Superstar!
I am off today to Stratford, Ontario to see Jesus Christ Superstar. I love the theater but am ambivalent at best about musicals. I have seen some amazing productions — Sweeny Todd with Angela Lansbury — but I am also super critical and there are a lot of saccahrine musicals I just cannot face. I have had tickets to Phantom of the Opera on 3 separate occasions and have not been able to drag myself to see it even once.
Still, I’m very hopeful about this production. It’s had great reviews and with Brent Carver, Paul Nolan, Chilina Kennedy it should live up to expecations! I’ll let you know.
