show: heaven on their minds

So auditions for one of my favorite musicals (Jesus Christ Superstar) are coming up at a local playhouse, and I’m really torn about who I should audition for. Judas is a dream role of mine but I know it’s super demanding physically but mostly vocally. I don’t want to audition for something I know I’ll likely not get cast, so I was thinking about playing it safe and auditioning for a smaller role. But I just don’t know man 😪

Listen Jesus
I don’t like what I see
All I ask is that you listen to me
And remember
I’ve been your right hand man all along
You have set them all on fire
They think they’ve found the new Messiah
And they’ll hurt you when they find they’re wrong

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
But it’s sad to see our chances weakening with every hour
All your followers are blind
Too much heaven on their minds!
It was beautiful, but now it’s sour
Yes it’s all gone sour!

Heaven On Their Minds (by OfficialRUG)

SO MUCH HOYAY in this version. Also Pilate is a leather daddy.

Needless to say, it’s my favorite version.
