This show is memorable from the modern dance to the lighting. Excellent performances from Ian McIntosh as Jesus, Luke Street as Judas and Hannah Richardson as Mary.

For me, the memorable moment is during This Jesus Must Die processing out onto the huge fallen cross that dominates the stage, where long ceremonial staffs are revealed as microphone stands. Judas’s betrayal is the catalyst for all that follows. So even when Luke Street is not centre stage, he is always present.

There are many stand out and uplifting moments, Hosanna; Pilate’s Dream; Ian McIntosh brings everything to the table for Gethsemane and Hannah Richardson gives a great performance of Mary Magdalene’s I Don’t Know How to Love Him. Special mention too for The soul singers Louise Francis, Myla Carmen, Mia Musakambeva

This production moves along at a fast pace. It is extremely powerful from beginning to end and it shows Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score and Tim Rice’s lyrics at their best. One not to be missed and a great adaptation of the script. The second half of the performance moves the audience from silence to applause and the standing ovation at the end of the show was well deserved.

Age Guidance 10+ The show contains flashing lights, pyrotechnics and theatre smoke.
