I grew up listening to Ted Neeley sing these songs and won't say anything bad about him but it might be time to move on. This just wasn't as professional a production as I... continued

I saw Neeley the first time he played Jesus and loved it then and his intensity is still as strong as ever. Great supporting cast. Herod stole the second act. I highly recommend this event to everyone.

This is a spectacular play and a must see. The music was fantastic and the acting was distinctive. Ted Neeley's voice made him distinct and unique as the one and only... continued

Performance was of outstanding quality with a different approach from other times I have viewed the performance. Strong voices for all members of the cast and seats were great.

We enjoyed the performance. I had never seen the stage play but the soundtrack had been a favorite of mine many many years ago.

Never in my life have I heard anyone scream so horrendously. Over and over again. Ted Neeley should retire, he was just not pleasant to hear. Maybe if you have an affinity... continued

seemed like it was the Disney production of JCS. No soul in most of the singers voices. Loved hearing Ted Neeley's voice again, but we left at intermission. Very disappointed.

have seen JCS 9 times in the past 35 years and this was a fantastic production. Ted Neeley, what a treat. Judas was great although i had a difficult time understanding him. loved it a great night of entertainment

I went to see it last night and i have to say that i didn't enjoy it at all. i think the stage, costume and singing were lame. we left at the intermission.
the seats were good tho.

It was fantastic. I have seen this show performed 5 different times over the years. And this is by far the best total ensemble cast and Ted Neely's Jesus is the cherry on... continued

Overall the show was fantastic. Ted Neeley was in vintage form...although I'm thinking it's time for him to pass the torch on to somebody a little closer to Jesus' age. ... continued

If you have seen the original play or movie and enjoyed them, you may not like this "over-the-top" production. Ted Neely's "singing," was, for the most part, screeching... continued

As a huge fan of JCSS, I was excited to see it with Ted Neeley. Unfortunately, this guy needs to be put out to pasture. He couldn't sing or move around too well.

Ted Neeley might be a million years old, but so what? The show is as campy and fun as ever. This production I think was limited by the theater itself; for instance, the... continued
