and loved it.

Ben was a great choice as Jesus and Tim Minchin was awesome, even Chris Moyles was good, funny.

If you have a chance to get tickets I highly recommend it.

I should imagine Chris Moyles plays a good Herod - and sings the - "So you are the Christ yes the great Jesus Christ.." very well!

I'm going on the 2nd October - glad it's good!

Saw it last night, sat right in the middle 8 rows back so amazing view.

Was very impressed with Ben Forster, Tim Minchin and suprisingly Mel C, really enjoyed her portrayal as its suited this production of it!

Chris Moyles was not the best Herod I have seen and he didn't actually sing just spoke the song but it did actually work as the concept was very good for that scene!

As a whole it was breathtaking and I would go again and again to see it!

Very jealous - wanted to take the DCs but it was way too expensive! sad

Maybe they will do a DVD?? Here's hoping!

They are definitely doing a DVD. You can preorder it on amazon now.

The DVD is available to preorder on amazon now. I'm v pleased as couldn't go to the show near to us, and a DVD Is much cheaper!

God knows why that message appeared twice. The first once vanished into the ether...

I went in Friday. Loved it (mainly).

Tim Minchin was fab. Loved Pilate and the high priests.

Not sure about Mel C. I don't like Moyles and although he got a big reception it just pissed me off that he can't sing.

I am just a little bit obsessed at the moment. It was a bit one volume, loud all the way through although perhaps I am just old but I hadn't listened to the music for years and loved it. Still remember just about every word toogrin

Would love to see this. Was a fan of the movie and have the soundtrack - amazing!

Chris Moyles thinks he can sing.

I went with the family last night, wow I was blown away,Tim Minchin stole the show for me,the passion he shown in the garden of gethsemane prior to him hanging himself was quite incredable. Ben was spot on too and Mel c proved again that a spice girl can actually sing. Andrew Lloyd webber made an apperance at the end which capped a great nights entertainment. (Did he show up at the other venues?)

I saw it at the O2 on the opening night and it was absolutely wonderful. My sister has set up a fb group for people who've seen it and can't get it out of their heads if anyone in the same situation would like to join us!
