    I know this musical is more than 40 years old now, has been on and off and on Broadway, and still annually has many productions with local theater and churches. But considering some of the attitudes toward entertainment on this board, this is a poll to check out what we think about a biblical story presented with ‘hip’ language, jazzy (sort of) music, and often with dancing (though some productions are a “Reader’s Digest” version and cut some or all the dancing and acting). Check all options that apply to you.

    The only version of this I know about is the stage production which starred Donny Osmond who was trying to make a comeback in his career.
    I heard he did an absolutely wonderful job in this and which I could have seen it but couldn't.

    I'm sure it was wonderful because Donny is talented whether anyone gives him credit for it or not. I saw him on Dancing With the Stars and he moved very well for 50.. I was certainly surprised.:applause::thumbs:

    I enjoyed it myself. I like the music, as I have in a lot of all kinds of musicals.
