Jesus Christ Superstar

A fantastic rock opera like no other, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is being performed at the Bristol Riverside Theatre, 120 Radcliffe Street, through April 16, 2017, Told from Judas’s perspective, this 1971 Broadway hit, which has been updated with selfie sticks and remarkable projections, is truly a delight. The amazing stairway, on which cast members, sing, dance and climb up and down, is periodically transformed into clouds, ocean waves, a small fire, and frequently series of words to describe the action or locale The multi-member ensemble is incredible. Bursting with energy, their dance routines are  full of pizazz and their singing, often in the form of repetitive choral chanting has beautiful harmonies and is very effective in moving the story along. Adam Kemmerer (Judas) has a very strong voice as do Darren Ritchie (Pontius Pilate) Steve Steiner (Caiaphas), Robert Farruggia (Annas) and Danny Rutigliano (King Herod)), all of whom have many shows to their credit. Ciji Prosser (Mary Magdalene) has a voice that is so rich it seems to have been heaven sent. It is no exaggeration to say that that the superstar of the show is Patrick H. Dunn who portrays Jesus of Nazareth. His voice is astounding and  his acting is awe-inspiring.
