Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic!!!!
2 April 2018 | by aaverbeckSee all my reviews

I'll be honest I'm a musical theater geek and I have been very disappointed with the latest shows like hairspray and a Christmas story, but this has been amazing! NBC really hit the jackpot with this one! John legend puts his own spin on Jesus and Brandon Victor Dixon is a phenomenal performer as Judas and blew me away. I hope FOX and CBS and ABC take note from nbc and put on phenomenal performances like this one!
