Legacy reader reviews

The Prince of Egypt is based on the 1998 film of the same name, in turn based upon the Biblical story.  If you haven't seen the former (I haven't), you will most likely know the latter, so I'll skip the scene setting and get straight to the show.

The show is... patchy, if I'm honest.  It takes what seems an eternity to really get going (well past the halfway point of the first half).  And there are times you can't recreate an animation.  A chariot scene is great in that setting, but no matter how well the actors perform, a chariot scene really doesn't work very well if you are not moving!  And if you're creating the illusion of blocks being heavy, you really can't perform dance numbers with them shortly after!

Things really pick up once Moses leaves Egypt; kudos to Gary Wilmot as Jethro, all warmth and compassion as he leads Moses onto a new path).  But the pace drops when he goes back to the Palace (I accept the Palace scenes are mostly setups for what is to come, but they do feel stilted).

But there is good in this show.  Once Rameses pledge to release the Hebrews is reneged and the Ten Plagues are brought upon Egypt, the following scenes are dramatic and powerful.

I must single out the Passover scene.  This is so simply done, yet carries such power and is deeply moving - you could have heard a pin drop in the audience.

The songs are by and large strong - highlights being 'Through Heavens Eyes,' 'For The Rest Of My Life' and 'When You Believe.'

The scenery is amazing: the projections onto the walls and the cleverly designed curtains that allow light to pass through them and create an illusion of sunlight falling are inspired.   The Red Sea scenes are stunning.

But the scenery wouldn't work without the incredible ensemble.  Ensembles should always be thanked, but this one is essential.  They form a major part of the scenery, creating everything from chariots to statues to rivers of blood!  Brava to them.

And Luke Brady does a fine acting job of portraying a man whose live turns from indolence to vengeful savior to almost broken by the weight of his task and the consequences.

With a tighter opening, this could have been a much better show. If it had matched up to the final three quarters, then this would have been a more positive review.
