Of course, when I saw the play and Adam Lambert began the song "Is Anyone Listening", I was in awe. I turned to my friend and said, "wow, is he singing the heck out of this song". We both had goosebumps! You can't imagine how happy I was to see Adam Lambert on American Idol. He is a gift and I look forward to hearing a lot from him in the future. He has the potential to be as popular as Elvis.
I had purchased this video and watched it a few times. I let a friend borrow it and never got it back..LOL! I am now buying a new copy and one for my friend who went to the play with me.
If you like broadway musicals, this is a little gem!
The main problem? The storytelling. Just not effective enough. The show relies too heavily on assuming the audience's knowledge of the story of Moses, with characters given little dramatic motivation (In many cases, we don't even catch their names). It helps to be familiar with the Old Testament-- or at least the animated movie "The Prince of Egypt," which seems to be an inspiration for this retelling. Even with some attempt to create tension between Moses and his brother Ramases, there is just not enough drama. In a way, the show seems to be missing a plot, feeling too often like a series of connected checkpoints. Moses sailing down the river into royalty. Check. Moses finding out his true identity. Check. Moses banished to the desert. Check. Burning Bush. Check. Parting of the Red Sea. Check. Strangely, some of the moments you think would create the most drama are all but glossed over-- the various plagues unleashed when Moses' demands are not met by the Pharoah, for instance, pass by with little fanfare.Read more ›
