We were very disappointed to learn that the production was being done by a Children's Theater Group. It was not clear in the ad for tickets. We were most unhappy with the performance and did not stay until the conclusion of the show. Please be...continued

Orchestra was too loud; couldn't understand about 1/2 of the words in the first act, especially by Judas. Also, it was not obvious that this was a modern version of the original (which ties together better). The scenes with the 2nd judge was...continued

It was very interesting to see this play with the multimedia behind it. In some ways it added to the experience and in some ways it was distracting.

Cast is very talented. Enjoyed the second half more than the first. Orchestra played a little loud and singers had to sing over them. Sound system not that great and hard to understand some of the singers. Our seats were against the wall on...continued

Really a great job for High Schoolers. Great dancing. The modern approach was most welcome. Like Jesus dies from lethal injection.

Excellent production and performances by young adults, intimate theater. My only complaint is that the sound was not that clear, I had a hard time hearing the lyrics sometimes. I'll definitely be checking out some more CMT performances.

The show was good but the balcony assigned seating was terrible: the last far right concer at the last row and there were many tall audiences in front of me.

A very contemporary version of Jesus Christ Superstar, I have seen the original in SF over 15 years ago. I thought it was fun to see their interpretation of Jesus Christ Superstar Rock Opera. The Choreography was amazing and orchestra too.
