Middle finger to the Bible
Well, hahahahaha. A reviewer of the Jesus Christ Superstar production I did the costumes for was reviewed by the local paper.

"The show's biggest middle finger to the Bible is a wedding scene in which Jesus (Broadway veteran Ernie Lijoi) and Mary Magdalene (Jessica Tidd) exchange vows in a dialogue-free, low lit and understated ceremony."

The reviewer wanted more of the wedding scene though. Can't please everyone.

Anyway, here's the review. And a note about the costumes in the photo. These ARE NOT the costumes they ended up wearing. I had to pull something real quick from the racks for the publicity photos. I was still in the process of dying and sewing fabric when the photos were taken a few weeks ago.

Another note. As you can see our Judas was a black female. She has an amazing voice and Jesus was more akin to the archaeological Jesus.

So here's the review. Hubby directed the show by the way. Teehee.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

A little bit. He's gay though, unlike George. What's super funny is that Ernie (a super nice guy) who plays Jesus was at a nude beach last week, sunning himself without a stitch of clothing on when two girls recognized him and ran up to him and gave him a hug. Now the entire cast and crew call him "Naked Jesus". I'm looking for a naked Jesus statue to give him as a joke but I'm not finding one.
