The show was so good that I am willing to spend the little money they gave me to buy the final product… Tim Minchin rocks! ^_^

Saw Superstar on Saturday and going again tomorrow – it’s brilliant and you are brilliant in it!

Saw the film at Innaloo on Saturday. Absolutely brilliant and can’t wait to get my hands on the DVD. Only problem with seeing it at the cinema is that the sound quality – and particularly volume – left a lot to be desired.

Congrats Tim – superstar performance!

Allan on 10th of November 2012

Well what a performance! Tim stole the show. Every number he sang was a big moment. Mel C and Ben F had big moments too but Tim crafted every song into a masterpiece of music and emotion. Tim there is serious side to you and you should let it out more often. Please come to Australia soon.

Just saw the screening in Sydney for JCSS. Tim was fantastic. This was the best adaptation of the rock opera I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait for the DVD. Please hurry!

Bethany on 1st of November 2012

I am so excited that we will be able to see it in Australia!
It is being released in cinemas on the day of my last HSC (higher school certificate exam) I can’t think of a better way to celebrate being finished school!

SO disappointed that Jesus Christ Superstar was cancelled in the U.S. Any plans to reschedule?
