i saw first preview, and the ramp that Jesus (spoiler alert) rides over the audience wasn’t working, so I got to hear this number 3 times as they kept starting over again hoping the ramp would work. The backup girls pretty visibly hated their life by the 3rd go around, but I was having a blast!
I particularly like “Lisa Shriver’s choreography, which is a liability from start to finish and could be transplanted wholesale into a Britney Spears concert.” I liked parts of the ‘ography, but they DID do “single ladies” in the temple which i would have complained about had the guys in leather not been, you know, hot.
I also wouldn’t use the word “glitzy” to describe the production so much as “slick”. Take away the video (and please, do, take away the video), and it’s downright spartan.
