JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

(2007-11-05)
I went to see Jesus Christ Superstar last weekend. As you probably know, Jesus Christ Superstar is a very popular musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Gekidan-Shiki performs it sometimes.
They have two versions of Jesus Christ Superstar.
One is called ‘Jerusalem version’. It might fit your image of Jesus Christ Superstar.
The other one is called ‘Japonisme version’. It is the original musical of Gekidan Shiki.

This time, I saw Japonisme version because last time I missed it.
The songs were the same as the normal one, but were arranged.

Of course, the costumes, music and make-up had a lot of Japanese tastes.
They used Japanese instrumentals, Kabuki make-up and Japanese Kimono.
But that’s all.

What is a true Japanese? Is Kabuki make-up Japan? Is Japanese instrumental Japan? Of course, they are one part of Japan. But its image is very poor.

By the way, the music was great. I think I like Andrew Lloyd Weber is a great composer. The stage direction was good, too. It was simple, but I could see many ideas. They used some board, which had two wheels. They uses as a road, a hill, cave. Sometimes they represented people’s feelings. It was really interesting.

Asari Keita, who is a responsible person of Gekidan-Shiki, is sometimes clever, but he is sometimes very silly. If I take it to a good point, his both sides will make good musicals.
