I watched Jesus Christ Superstar on 14 March. I enjoyed the music and Mary Magdalene was superb but overall I felt the tone was little subdued. The stage was dark and the actors/dancers wore rather dark clothing. I also felt that the emphasis was hugely on the crucifixion and very little on the resurrection. I wont be recommending friends to... More

I remain a big fan of the Ted Neeley Carl Anderson film version and I have seen many versions of the show over the years but I bought our £30 tickets with hope and excitement . I could only say that this version with Glen Carter as Jesus and Tim Rogers was just ok but nothing more I'm afraid !... More

Four of us attended the matinee of Jesus Christ Superstar yesterday and I am sorry, I was not at all impressed. We sat in the circle but there weren't many people in, which probably affected the acoustics, no allowance was made for this, and the sound was mainly just a cacophony of sound. We moved seats to see if it... More

If you are looking for a great afternoon entertainment, what better than 2 hours listening to the Mighty Wurlitzer in the Opera House? £5 for a musical treat, listening to one of the most famous musical instruments in the world played by a first-rate organist. Watching it ascend and descend, a virtuoso performance on the stops and pedals as well... More

After saying that CALLABRO were FANTATIC !!!! One of the best shows we have ever been to. Lucy Kay was amazing too. All... More
