Just a closer walk with Thee...

I saw Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar last night at the Bloomington Civic Theatre, and the only reason I’m not completely depressed by the death scene at the end (you know the story…it’s in the Bible) is that the actor who plays Jesus of Nazareth (Patrick Morgan) is an absolute doll—and he assures me that the blood is fake. I just had to show you his picture before heading off to bed, where I hope that I will not dream of murderous behavior by the clergy. More about this classic “rock opera” on my show Saturday, so tune in!
By the way, Jesus wears Homer Simpson slippers. Betcha didn’t know that!
