“Last week I took my nephew to see the production of Jesus Christ Superstar which is playing at the Barbican. It’s a great revamped production and the music, set and dancing feel fresh, dramatic and alive. When this show first came out in the 80s apparently some Christians demonstrated outside the theatres saying it was blasphemy. Quite the contrary, now it seems heartening and courageous that a major production aims to tell the story of the death of Jesus so vividly.”
A Sermon by Revd Richard Carter, delivered on the Eighth Sunday after Trinity.
