Every Easter weekend I usually find time to watch my favorite musical Jesus Christ Superstar (JCS).
I’m generally not a musical kind a gal, although I’ve enjoyed a few (Dreamgirls and Wicked come to mind). I love JCS because it’s rock music and takes a look at the Passion of Christ from a different perspective (through the eyes of Judas & Jesus/Y’eshua). I’ve always loved Ted Neely and Carl Anderson in those parts, but I found a man who played in the London stage version in the 90’s. I don’t know who played Judas in it, but indulge me being female for a moment … the man who played Jesus is one fine specimen, with a voice like an angel.
Since this is the weekend of the passion, I just had to share this version of Gethsemane by the man who played Jesus in JCS on the London stage … Steve Balsamo. (Hang on past the ad and at least stick it out to between 3 & 4 minutes. It’s worth it.)
