It truly was an amazing high school musical production....Oh, I'm sorry!....You say it was a university production,...2 years in the making? Wow!.....Watch out Broadway! When will it show on Broadway, by the way? I can't wait to buy "those" tickets.

I heard that it was laughably, eye-rollingly bad.

I actually thought for a brand new musical, this was amazing. I hate musicals, and the only reason I went was because I got dragged there. My expectations were low, I admit, but I left rather impressed. Who wrote it?

I directed the production which was written by Bradford Hodgson, Justin Raines and Chris Sanders. I've seen about a hundred musicals on Broadway and many, many in dozens of other venues. Before we ever mounted it, I have to say that the script and music are incredibly clever and modern. I wonder if "Judas" actually spoke to someone who saw the show. Too bad he missed it.

To write and mount a fictional comic musical about real life events and real people without considering the effect it can have on their lives and reputations is criminal. I am pleased to read that it failed. Perhaps the writers can put their future efforts into doing good things instead of trying to kick those who are already down.

I wish I had seen this earlier. All you that diss this musical should be ashamed of yourselves! MY brother Justin, worked damned hard, as did the other two involved. The entire crew worked their A**** off. It was fantastic, it was brilliant, it was fun!! What else could you possibly want in a musical. Are you jealous you didn't think of it first? You neighsayers are a bunch of losers who don't matter much anyway. They already have an agent because of their success! Look for this musical coming to Broadway, soon!!!!

What would you know? Did you see it? As a matter of fact, they portrayed all the idividuals that were involved with this scandal, in a very humane light. There may have been a few jabs at some, but nothing over the top. If you had seen the performance, you would know.

By the way, it looks like there is a good chance that Jeffrey Skilling's convictions may soon be reversed [see http://blog.kir.com/ ]. You may want to think about some rewrites to that script.
