I had the privilege of directing and appearing in an ENORMOUS production of Jesus Christ Superstar in Gloucester Cathedral in March 2014. This is the first of three picture blogs documenting the final week. It was a fabulous experience, with a cast of 130, and a 70-piece orchestra in the most glorious of settings. We were fortunate enough to sell out, and receive complete standing ovations every night.
For me, one of the great joys was working with two uber-talented leading men - Jon Moses (he of ITV's "Superstar" and possessor of the most glorious of voices) playing Jesus, and my stunning 52nd Street bandmate and good friend Daniel Haslam playing Judas. I honestly don't think I could have asked for more - they're both incredible singer / actors, and many adventures were had along the way. (Also, an inordinate amount of wine was drunk, mainly by myself and The Moses, but that's a tale for another time)! Thanks to Jerry Lane Productions for the opportunity - it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Now here are some shots from the final rehearsals and tech! (In the second and third blogs, I'll take you through the show)! Pics copyright Cordelia Lewis for Streamline Design. Reproduced here with permission.
