Ted Neeley's still got it not to mention the other members of the cast who were equally fantastic. The presentaton of this production was captivating. I would recommend it to anyone. It is definately a must see.

I Loved Jesus Christ Superstar and highly recommend anyone of all ages go see it. I seen the play back in the early 90's also starring Ted Neely and after 17 years he is still a fabulous actor and singer.

Let's start with the good part. The ensemble was great. But that's where it ends. I'm sorry but Jesus was around 34 when he dies....Ted Neely is 65!!!! He did as good of a job as one can when you are playing a role 30 years too young for you. But...continued

Although the rest of the cast was good, my daughter and I were not impressed with the lead's (Jesus) voice so we are thinking that the understudy may have been there instead of the lead because it was a matinee. Also, the seats were not at the...continued

Seat location was good (for half price) and it was an obviously well-received performance. But I personally didn't like some of the directorial decisions. I've previously seen the play twice and the movie once so perhaps had unrealistic...continued

I was one of the lucky ones that had the opportunity to be blown away when this production first came out on Broadway. I found it interesting that the stage set-up did not change, but after awhile it became a non-issue.

Ted Neeley commands the...continued

Jesus Christ Super Star was incredible! When I booked the tickets I had no idea it was Ted Neeley's Farewell Tour. He is 64 years old and has portrayed Jesus for over 35 years! His presence and voice quality are even more outstanding and...continued

I thoroughly enjoyed this production and Ted Neeley overwelmed me with his singing. It was even better than I remember it and am grateful that I was able to attend this, being his farewell tour. The whole cast was exceptional and I liked how they...continued

I'd never seen "JC Superstar" live before, so it was a treat to see Ted Neely do the role (as he's done for 35 years).

As a musical it wasn't very good. There was a lot of screeching in the songs which was just loud. The story was misconstrued, and the lyrics if you can understand them were silly. example: hosanna hey sanna sanna sanna who...

It's not...continued

Props were lacking, no scene changes, odd background singers sometimes. NOT what I was expecting at all.

The seats were very good and certainly worth the value. The music and performances were fantastic and I'm still singing the songs!!! I would not have gone if it was not for Goldstar, so thank you!

Excellent musical. Ted N was superb as Jesus, and they added a song from the movie that wasn't in the original musical. Very enjoyable!

I enjoyed the play. I thought the play was a little flat at the end.
