1.0 star rating Dee Curci from Fort Myers, Florida


How this production could get 5 star ratings is beyond me. Screaming does not constitute “singing”. We did not come to see a “Rock Concert” trying to imitate a Rock Opera that the original works of Andrew LLoyd Webber produced. We have seen the original and one other “reproduction of the original” Each reproduction further diminishes the intent to inspire a deeper understanding and honoring of what the God/Man, Jesus Christ came to bring to all humanity by His suffering and death.

1.0 star rating Scott from Dallas, Texas


I took my wife and two kids. We are a theater family. My daughter is heading off to college to major in theater. We have been musical season ticket holders for years. Jesus Christ Superstar was not only the worst musical we’ve ever seen but it was the worst production we have ever endured at any level. I genuinely felt sorry for the cast. The only bright spot of the entire evening was when we realized that it was the curtain call and not intermission but we could not get to our car fast enough and we were howling laughing the entire way home about just how horrific it was. I hope that all of the cast members can finish up their obligation to the production as quickly as possible and get as far away from it as humanly possible. This production is beyond atrocious!

1.0 star rating Xavier from Dallas, Texas


This review is limited to 1000 characters. With that limitation it is impossible for me to express just how horrible this production is and how massively disappointing the entire experience was. I would need 10,000 characters at least! Do not go! Stay at home! It is so bad that I felt embarrassed for the cast and even felt sorry for them.

1.0 star rating Elaine from Atlanta, Georgia


This play was a waste of my time. I did not understand what they were singing about most of the time. I was so bored that I almost walked out of the play.

1.0 star rating 33yroldfemaleChristian from Atlanta, Georgia


I had very high expectations. The play was uninspiring and boring. The music and costumes were distracting. The Jesus with a high mohawk pony tail...WHY! The gospel of JESUS is powerful, but this performance was dark and sad. I hated every second of it and would have left before it ended it I had been by myself.

1.0 star rating Beth from Chicago, Illinois


Impossible to hear the lyrics over the band and the distortion of voices singing too closely into hand held mics. No acting in sight either. And if you don’t know the details of the plot, try following along. Just a mix of random voices, some of whom were flat. This show was 90 frustrating and tedious minutes of “what’s going on now?”I suspect they offer no intermission because they need to keep the audience captive. Skip it.

1.0 star rating Ilana from Chicago, Illinois


I had never seen this show and was very excited--that lasted about 5 minutes as I realized I could not understand any of the lyrics being sung. The dancing was awful, the use of the microphones distracting and the costumes were terrible. This was like a bad high school production. I couldn't even stay for the entire 90 minutes. This was among the worst shows I have ever seen.
