Review Zusammenfassung - JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR premiert in DortmundReview Zusammenfassung - JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR premiert in Dortmund
by Iris Moebius - Oct 24, 2014

In diesem Herbst widmet sich das Theater Dortmund in einer Co-Produktion mit dem Theater Bonn einer neuen, englisch-sprachigen Inszenierung von Andrew Llyod Webber's und Tim Rice's Rock-Oper 'Jesus Christ Superstar'. Musikalische Auseinandersetzungen mit Jesus Christus und der Passionsgeschichte haben eine lange Tradition, selbst Musicals zu dem Thema gab es schon vor Lloyd Webber. Was die konservativen Kreise damals jedoch befremdete, war der Ansatz von Tim Rice, die letzten sieben Tage Jesu aus der Sicht von Judas zu erzahlen. Judas, nicht ein Verrater, sondern ein Freund und Anhanger von Jesus, der besorgt beobachtet, wie ihre gemeinsame Bewegung aus dem Ruder lauft: Die immer fanatischer werdenden Anhanger machen aus Jesus eine Kultfigur, erheben jedes seiner Worte zur absoluten Wahrheit, wahrend er selbst zunehmend launischer und unzuganglicher wird. Tim Rice entwirft das Bild eines zutiefst menschlichen Jesu, den aber Anhanger und Gegner gleichermaßen zum Superstar stilisieren. In Zeiten des Starkults, der Sehnsucht nach Leitfiguren und verbindlichen Werten sind die Fragen, die Jesus Christ Superstar aufwirft, nach wie vor hoch aktuell. (more...)

It's really interesting to me in any kind of Shakespeare how people speak in definites, when there's no way to know them. This one seems to be one that actors hold very near and dear to their hearts.

by Paul W. Thompson - Oct 20, 2014

Can a new musical be 'pre-Broadway' without having a New York theater booked, or without even announcing a timetable for said booking? How about a musical largely penned by a previously unknown writer, one who worked as a Pennsylvania policeman, and never formally studied music composition? Well, AMAZING GRACE is that show, and this expensive-looking, high-aiming show that's been in development since 2007, with book, music and lyrics by Christopher Smith (the book is co-written with the veteran playwright Arthur Giron) opened on Sunday night. So far, so good! (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 20, 2014

Today we are talking to the gifted composer and lyricist behind the earth-shattering score for Broadway's biggest recent hit, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, the versatile and passionate Stephen Trask. Shedding considerable light on the development of the idiosyncratic rock musical, Trask discusses his influences and the organic way in which the outre show developed from humble beginnings at downtown bar Squeezebox in the mid-1990s, to Off-Broadway hit at the turn of the new century all the way to the rapturously received feature film adaptation, and, now, the 2014 Broadway production. Trask also details his affection for Tony Award-winning lead actor Neil Patrick Harris and looks ahead to the new leading man donning the titular wig, Andrew Rannells. Additionally, Trask also shares news on the forthcoming sequel to HEDWIG currently being developed with John Cameron Mitchell and teases some of what we can expect from the hotly anticipated theatrical experience. Furthermore, Trask reflects on his own upbringing and musical influences and how that informed the composition of the score for HEDWIG, as well as his own favorite performers. Plus, Trask reflects on his fruitful career as a movie scorer in Hollywood and comments on his upcoming musical endeavors, including two original stage musicals - JUST THE BLACK KEYS, a real-life inspired original musical potentially involving Peter Askin and Michael Mayer, as well 15 MINUTES, a Studio 54-centric period piece written with Rick Elice - as well as much, much more.
