superstar fish


continuing the Jesus theme, i went to see Jesus Christ Superstar on Saturday, at the Keswick Theatre some ways north of Philadelphia. my uncle has been playing Jesus for oh, 15 years or so now...i've never seen any other version of the musical than this Midnight Productions show (although i have seen pieces of the movie, which is pretty ridiculous...i mean, all musicals are inherently ridiculous to one degree or another, but JCS by its very nature is way at the top of the list...) but it's a good one, especially since it's basically community theater...anyway, i really dig their light effects, & the leads have some serious vocal skills.

& my uncle plays a mean Jesus.

photos from the theater will be going up on the tourist later today...

in other news, Mr. Nose has a new installment of the Lt. Drinkwater saga up at the lounge, Elaine plays with alligators, lizards, & a banyan tree, Kate plays under the cherry blossoms in Shimokitazawa, & monkey0 visits the house on the rock.

5 little fish:

Thats cool that your uncle plays the big J! Sounds like you had a really nice Easter weekend. Looking forward to popping over and seeing Monkey's pix of House on the Rock!

really emily?
i guess that's what we get for being anonymous web people...we can walk right by each other in the real world, & never know...
were you at the 5 pm show?

it is cool, carl, albeit a little odd...like, "hey, great to see you, now that you're done being crucified, you wanna grab some dinner?"
