Sardines Review: Jesus Christ Superstar at The Bridewell Theatre

Sardines Review: Jesus Christ Superstar at The Bridewell Theatre

Sarah Falcus, June 2014

 

"Matt Cameron as Jesus was wonderfully understated, radiating calm and serenity in the face of an increasingly hysterical crowd, which turns from extreme love to extreme hate. He sang strongly, hitting high notes with apparent ease, and with the confidence of a pop star."

"Robert J Stanex plays the tortured Judas with great empathy, allowing the audience to share in his growing fear for his closest friend, his agony over his betrayal and eventual breakdown. The sparkly title track was also a highlight, with pitch perfect, gospel style vocals.." 

 

"Jo Eggleton as Mary Magdalene was one of the standout performers. Every word was clear and sharp and she came across wonderfully as Jesus’ most loyal and only female disciple."

 

"This was an excellent, innovative production that all involved should be very proud of. Judging by the enthusiastic standing ovation at the end, I am not the only audience member that thought so."
