This section was looking a little lonely so I thought I'd post something. ;D I never saw Tony live in JCS but have seen the ALW DVD and a range of various other video clips. Do you prefer Tony as Simon or Judas?
For me it is a tough choice but his Judas looks amazing and I'm a sucker for him singing 'Superstar' *has fond memories of the Masterpiece DVD*
Judas is one of the most impressive, and probably most difficult roles in modern theatre. The "villian"/anti-hero actually has a bigger part than Jesus in some ways, and it is VERY complicated vocally. I saw Ben Vereen play the role last August, and I was SO impressed. For an actor, or a singer, it's an amazing challenge. Judas all the way.
