BWW Review: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at Te Auaha
September 21, 2020

Blazing a trail between Rock and Roll and Musical Theatre, Jesus Christ Superstar was originally released as an album in UK in 1970. The musical is a sung-through rock opera Passion Play depicting the last seven days of the life of Jesus Christ. Banned by the BBC and South Africa for being sacrilegious, consequent film and staged productions have also received criticism for the fact that the musical is written from the perspective of Judas Iscariot. Many Christians prefer to completely vilify Judas and feel uncomfortable that the musical alludes to a more human viewpoint of the interpersonal relationships between Jesus, Judas and Mary Magdalene.

BWW Review: I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT...NOW CHANGE! at Up-Stage
November 4, 2019

I Love You, You're Perfect....Now Change! is an upbeat, Off Broadway musical revue that ran for more than 5000 performances from 1996-2008. Traditionally set in New York in the late-20th Century this production is an updated version for 2018. The show takes us through numerous vignettes that depict life in terms of love and romance. The themes are glimpses into the reality of life and love - the Manhattan dating scene, mid-life suburban marriage and old age and all the humour, hurt and beautifully ragged emotion it entails. Jimmy Roberts' perky music with book and adorably humble lyrics by Joe DiPietro are cute, funny, poignant and totally relatable. It holds up a mirror with a gentle, warm and charming hand and encourages us to laugh at ourselves.
