Along with the main cast members in the production, Playbill has reported that the ensemble, accompanying them, is made up of Melody Betts, Felicia Boswell, Heath Saunders, Joey Taranto, Abby Corrigan, Christine Dwyer, Mike Evariste, F. Michael Haynie, Charissa Hogeland, Bre Jackson, Jonah Platt, Mykal Kilgore, Billy Lewis Jr., Joel Perez, Justin Gregory Lopez, Angel Lozada, Vince Oddo, Micaela Diamond, Rory Donovan, Kyle Taylor Parker, Conor Ryan, Christina Sajous, Justin Matthew Sargent, Syndee Winters, and Lauren Zakrin. According to USA Today, star John Legend recently suffered from the flu and has been nursing himself back to health. Hopefully this doesn’t affect his vocals.
Legend grew up in a very religious household, telling USA Today that, “I grew up around a bevy of preachers and singers in the church, so I’m very familiar with this story, and what it means to so many people. What’s cool about this show is how Andrew and Tim re-imagined the last few days of (Jesus’) life and really connected to his humanity.” So, this is a very exciting project for him. Tune in tonight to see Legend and the other stars put on the live musical production.
