This production was a visual marvel with versatile, complex sets and effects that made you jump. It was 1 hour and 45 minutes long without an interval, so you were drawn to the story and scarcely had a chance to breathe.
The Messiah is certainly a feast for the ears and eyes. Through revolving stages, versatile props and clever lighting, as well as the comedy mastery of Hugh and John, and with angelic Lesley, this show is one worth watching time and time again.
It was a historical, educational, thought-provoking play through deranged comedy and insane multi-part playing, with hallucinogenic elements.
Charles portrayal of Rebus is well worth the visit of die-hard fans, but perhaps you had to read the books to be fully immersed.
