Last week I was pleasantly surprised.Â Actually, more than just pleasantly–I was stirred.
It was Friday evening after a long week and not only was I tiered; my expectations for the show were low.Â But I was sure glad I went.
The performance by 14 very talented singers, musicians and dancers is in two parts.Â The first half traces the life of David through Psalms and song.Â The second half traces the history of hymnity/worship from Gregorian chant to contemporary worship.
The staging, costumes, acting, singing and music were very well done.Â I would say that the level of talent is greater in this small show than in the larger productions at Sight and Sound (personal observation).Â The show was just the right length (about an hour and a half).Â The performers seemed to enjoy what they were doing and connected well with the audience.Â I would have liked to see them go one more step in the history of worship.Â They stopped with a couple well know but calm worship choruses.Â It would have been educational if they had included one more, well, upbeat perhaps rockier songÂ (though they are probably aiming at their audience).
The performance while entertaining was also inspiring and uplifting.Â Â I left the theater worshiping God.
Now I can’t wait to take my boys.
