Wow it was really nerve wracking to go and talk to them and tell them how much the experience all meant to me, and to ask for photos but I’m so glad I did because they were all wonderful.
Wish I could have got to everyone, but it was really crowded and i had to get to my friends apartment.
Thank you again everyone for such an amazing performance.

So, I went to "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" on Sunday, and I just wanted to share the pictures with everyone!

Please ignore my ugly self.


It was an absolutely incredible show. Everyone did such an amazing job and I was completely blown away. Wish it was still going so I could see it again! Anyway, kudos to everyone involved! Thanks for putting so much work into the play. It definitely showed!

Who else was in that original production that people might recognize?
  • Julia Albain: There was this one guy in the show, that I think a few people know, his name was Darren Criss and he played Judas. I don't think he's coming back for this one, but you never know. Maybe.
  • ...
  • Julia Albain: You know, Darren is pretty nostalgic. So it's like, that might be where we can really poke him and get him.
  • Joey Richter: Darren loves memories and friends.
  • Julia Albain: He loves memories so much! He hoards memories.
  • Joey Richter: And if we can tell Darren, "Darren, we'll get food together every night when you're there," he will just lose it! Darren loves getting food...
  • Julia Albain: Yeah, Darren is a memory hoarder, he's a memory hoarder. Which is a good thing.
Judas: I’ll tell you what I know: I watched you trip over your own dusty feet to heal the sick, the blind, the lame, the unclean, any two-bit stranger stubbed their fuckin’ toe! When some lowly distant relative - too cheap to buy enough wine for his own fuckin’ wedding - suddenly runs out of booze - no problem, you just presto change-o and it was fuckin’ Miller time in ol’ Canaan again, wasn’t it, bro? But when I fuckin’ needed you - where the fuck were you, huh?!
Jesus: Judas-
Judas: You forgave Peter and bullshit Thomas - you knocked Paul of Tarsus off a horse - you raised Lazarus from the fuckin’ dead- but me? Me? Your ‘heart’? What about me? What about me, Jesus? Huh? You just, you just - I made a mistake! And if that was wrong, then you should have told me! And if a broken heart wasn’t sufficient reason to hang, THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT, TOO!
Jesus: Don’t you think that if I knew that it would have changed your mind… That I would have?
Judas: All I know is that you broke me unfixable […]

I’ll admit, while I like the songs from Jesus Christ Superstar, it’s a theologically backwards play. I get what the playwrites were “doing” with it, but that’s still not enough to be honest.

(At least it’s better than The Last Days of Judas Iscariot)
