Wow. This show was a full-on non-stop sensory experience.
It blinked and breathed and nudged me and I scooped it up and sat with it in my lap with my eyes wide and my ears perked.
I had to store parts of the show in my brain-bag for later because during the show I was fully occupied with laughing at the jokes, smelling the smells, ooh-ing at the visuals and being enthralled by McCormick’s passionate and skillful interpretations of pop songs and New Testament story lines.
There’s a French saying that I’ve always loved;
‘il faut brûler pour briller’ and this contains smoke, fire and shining satire.
I was particularly moved by the ascension scene where McCormick’s rendition of the chart topping power ballad ‘Run’ becomes full-bodied full-throated bawling and protest.
