1. Stephen Schwartz

2. Meant to be timeless, but new production dated the story of Jesus and the Apostles. Gave wrong message. Lead actor good on softer songs, but wasn’t edgy enough when it came to rougher songs.

3. The musical is based very loosely on the Gospels’ account of the last week of Jesus’ life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem, and ending with the crucifixion. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, struggles that are not in the Bible. The resurrection is not included. It therefore largely follows the form of a traditional passion play.
