Hey guys, i'm doing a musical theatre degree in England and im in my final year. As part of my degree i have to do an extended essay of my choice. I have decided to do my essay on musical theatre and religion, questioning whether certains shows are portrayed as blaphmous? whether they are gettin more controversial over the years. The main 3 i chose were Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar and Jerry Springer the Opera..... If any one has any opinions on this matter i would but very greatful for any feed back and opinions to add in my essay! Thankyou!!!

A while back I found a website made by Christians about how the movie of Godspell is entirely blaphmous. Had many opinions on it and why it was blaphmous etc. I will try and re-locate it. I remember specifically how they thought it it entirely wrong to have Jesus portrayed by a clown, almost as if the whole movie was mocking Christianity. Will post a link as son as I find it.
