I have to be honest and say that I didn’t think I was going to like this show BUT I fell in love! This cast, the set and the music!!! Jesse Nager’s  (Jesus of Nazareth) voice is off the charts amazing. It literally will give you the chills. I’ve also never seen an ensemble bring it together so well. There isn’t just one star – the whole cast is the star! Everyone brings their A game. Their energy soars off the stage and right into your soul. By the end, it truly felt like a rock concert with everyone on their feet dancing and singing. I was waiting for people to start yelling….encore! Also, as a photographer, the set and staging was beyond eye pleasing. Every set change, I so wished I could take a picture. It was simply perfect.

This is my favorite scene when Erin Schwab (King Herod) sings her solo. You will walk away from this show with a big smile, singing these songs for weeks and still thinking about each scene. Ordway hit it out of the park!
