SAVE YOUR MONEY. Unfortunately, much of the cast's vocals were not so good and at some points shocking awful. I will say the cast member who played Mary (her debut) was excellent! Her voice was incredible and she gave me goose bumps. There were a few cast members voices that were okay but the actor playing JC was only good on the screechy parts of the singing. Also it appeared the cast was sharing a microphone and the sound people did not appear to adjust the volume for cast members who's voices needed more amplification. The dancers were fabulous and the instrumentalist did a great job. Overall though, I would only give it a C.

I saw it today at the State Theater. First of all it took 2 1/2 hours to get there from the Bronx and when I arrived there was no parking. Once I finally found a lot I then had to walk to the theater. I was not impressed with my seats or the adaptation of the rock opera itself. I would not choose to visit this venue again.

Talented performers, but it was not the emotion evoking performance expected from this Broadway classic. Nothing more than prop choreography (mic stands, mics and guitars as props???) while singing the songs from JCS. Save your entertainment dollar for a more worthy event.

Ever since I first heard the album in 1972, I have been a huge fan of Jesus Christ Superstar. I love the music, and the movie. I have seen and loved many versions of the play. This version that I saw tonight at San Jose Center for Performing Arts was impossible to watch. My seat in the theater was perfect, however the choreography was so chaotic and distracting that I kept staring at the ceiling or the walls so I could enjoy the music. Each time I would chance a glance at the beginning of the next song, some new crazy weird unrelated choreography would be going on again. Awful! Jesus and Pilot playing guitars?? Why? No! The singers had microphones with cords and mike stands. Why? And what was the point of the obscene gestures the priests were making with their mike stands. All the choreography was so uncomfortable. The music was wonderful.

I saw this musical in San Jose on 10/26/19. Prior to purchasing tickets, I looked online to see what the musical was about. It had gotten many rave reviews so I was not expecting such an awful show. The music was just okay. The set, costume, and delivery were all weak. Choreography was terrible. I planned to leave during intermission but there was no intermission so I was stuck till the end. I didn’t enjoy any part of it.

First off let me say I love musicals and cannot count how many I’ve seen in my 36 years. I was in show choir, competitive dance and choir. I only mention all of this because I can truly appreciate the arts and theater in particular. This is the worst musical I have seen in my whole life. It was depressing(not in the good self introspectionsort of way), sad and lackluster. I would have left, had there been an intermission. I wanted to ask the very enthusiastic lady next to me what she took or what she was seeing, that I was not. Save your money. Check out les miserables, the book of Mormon or something equally as fantastic. Much love to the performers but sorry for them they are in this production. Waste of 90 minutes of my life and lots of resources...

1.0 star rating Wanted it to be good but it wasn’t. from Las Vegas, Nevada


HATED IT! Choreography was awful. Costumes awful. Jesus had a man bun! And played guitar as did Pilot. Band was good and part of the set. Cast carried around microphones and the stands??? Just a big mess. One of the worst shows I have seen.
