“This was a complete farce. It bore no resembelance to...”

Written on: 21/09/2009

This was a complete farce. It bore no resembelance to the book or the film. The lead actors had zero charisma and the lead female actors were whiney and annoying. I'm still not sure what language they were speaking in and can anyone tell me why they sounded like Jabba the Hut? The narrator was wondering around like he was lost and the fact that he was wearing contemporary clothes made him stick out like a sore thumb. Ben Hur Live! was a bore fest of the highest order. It seems like it… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2009

Ben hur Live. Went to see this last night (20th Sept) with husband and 3 children ages 16, 11 and 9. To find something which all enjoyed and are raving over is unusual to say the least. Shakespeare it is NOT. However, if you want something to take the family to which offers more than the Christmas panto or inane tv tie in, a show that will be remembered long after the latest pop star's concert has been forgotten, then this is it. Many of the press critics have panned the show for lack of… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2009

Ben Hur Live - Confusing and messy with Stewart Copeland wandering around aimlessly with a microphone! There was no connection between the audience and the main characters--even finding them amongst the huge array of gladiators and miscreants was very difficult. A very dissapointing evening with a lack lustre ambience. More like Ben Hur on ice than a theatrical experience. The horses were fabulous though and outshone the actors on every appearance… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2009

Innovative, exciting, challenging and very, very different. The opening night of Ben Hur Live did I imagine, live up to most people's expectations, a spectacular of epic proportions which worked well in the main. The actor playing Ben Hur could never have the sheer charisma of Charlton Heston but brought his own strengths to the role, notably speaking in Aramaic which added authenticity. At times there was almost too much going on in the arena with such a vast array of participants - it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2009

Ben Hur Live had it's World Premier last night at the O2 Arena. We had wonderful seats at the end of the arena over the entrance used by the chariots and galleys. The story of the film was presented in a slightly stuttering manner, but overall was very entertaining. The staging was inventive, some of the performances stilted but well worth the money. The scenes with the galleys were cleverly done, and the chariot race climax was excellent… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2009

Ben hur live at the O2 was fantastic! Saw it this evening with my father in law and brother in law, all of us enjoyed it and thought it had made a good leap from screen to stage. All the key scenes where there and ending with the classic chariot race that was very good indeed. It is a show for all ages and there is so much going on at all times in the arena at the same time, it may be the main actors or acrobats or street merchants or even a young boy with.two Shetland ponys on a chariot! Catch… Read Full Review
