    I saw Jesus in his underwear

    Last week I was drafted to play guitar in "Jesus Christ Superstar". Ironic, because I haven't been religious in a long time and have been reading up on the roots of that particular religion just recently. But it paid OK and while I wouldn't find the music that interesting to listen to it was fun to play (my musical background is in the 1970's and the guitar parts are pretty open. I did get a few good comments about my usage of David Gilmore and Mahavishnu vocabulary).

    Having packed up after the last show today I made one more trip to the green room/bath room only to run into Jesus! He had just taken his cloak off (to take a leak, I guess) and forgotten to lock the door. Funny, the actor looked like I imagined Jesus to look like when my mom still dragged me to church.

    Good casting, huh?

    I saw JCS at the height of its popularity at a theater-in-the-round. Very entertaining.

    Same here (except the round part). Even though I was only marginally exposed to religion growing up, it didn't really matter. There was some really good music from it. (I used to have a sheet music book for piano for that, too bad it's long gone)

    He didn't have the corresponding tattoo to "Jesus is coming, look busy", did he?

    I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus.

    I also saw JCSS back on Broadway in the 1970s when it first opened, and recall liking the musical, in spite of any conflicts between it and my religious beliefs.
