Miranda Musical Society’s new production is a very good revival of the show ALTAR BOYZ helmed by Osman Kabbara. ALTAR BOYZ premiered at the 47th Street Theatre in New York City in September 2004 and then went Off Broadway in March the following year. It has since become one of the longest running off-Broadway musicals of all time.
This is a dazzling, superb version of Lloyd Webber and Rice’s rock opera JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR that takes one’s breath away.
Willoughby Theatre Company‘s(WTC) revival, directed by Stig Bell is a contemporary reworking of the now classic 1970’s musical that burns , including contemporary choreography,slang and ironic allusions to modern day life that make it as fresh as if it was written yesterday .
In a strong ,powerful piece of theatre , Lloyd Webber and Rice take us through the last week of Jesus’ life and ministry,as based on the Gospels . This includes Palm Sunday ,the Last Supper and end with the events of Good Friday and Mary Magdalene sobbing over Jesus’ inert body.
