    1. I kind of liked this one actually. Thought the concept and ideas were interesting enough. Kind of read differently from Miller's other plays too.


    2. Arthur Miller's penultimate play, according to the back flap. It was an interesting, sometimes hilariously funny book, that, unfortunately, fluctuates wildly between funny satire and maudlin observations on humanity's lack of readiness for a second coming. Don't get me wrong: it's not a bad read, nor probably a bad play (it seemed a bit more like a Thornton Wilder play in the stage directions, I have to say though), and you won't regret reading it. But it is not _Death of a Salesman_ or _The Cru [...]


    3. Arthur Miller is mostly known for his dramas which border on tragedy. This play, one of his last, shows his satiric edge, as a possible Second Coming of Christ is politicized, monetized and televised by the powers that be. The show feels a little bloated, and could use some revisions, but given Miller's status in the world of drama and literature, it's no wonder "Resurrection Blues" was given a pass in development and put onstage. Not a masterpiece, but a clever and underappreciated work from a [...]


    4. Weird. At points uproarious and, at others, curious. The whole thing bubbles forward, like Waiting for Godot (without the same deliberate desire to never arrive) to an oddly satisfying dissatisfying ending. It works, just. Which I think means it's working well. I think "it works, just" is kind of the relationship all too many people have with religion and faith and God and miracles in the first place and maybe that's the point.


    5. I thought the premise of this play was really fantastic "What would we Jesus Christ lived today?" And I thought the conclusion he came to "We'd crucify him, televise it and sell it to the highest bidder" was pretty much spot on. What I didn't like was the character of the son of god. I don't knowybe I was expecting him to be an exact representation of Jesus, but he wasn't.


    6. In an unnamed Latin American country, a captured prisoner who may or may not be the second coming of Christ, is said to be able to perform miracles such as walk through walls, a major problem for the prison guards, and, because his popularity among the impoverished citizens, the military dictator has sentenced him to be crucified. A wealthy land-owner who is the cousin of the dictator, his depressed daughter-a close friend of the accused- and an American television production team that arrives t [...]


    7. Hysterical. I wished there was more of this play, so that I could see more of the light. The premise is really the hook - a reality show crucifixion of a modern messiah. The ups and downs of trying to get the show going are hilarious.


    8. What do you worship? Who do you believe in? Slow to godullish characters serving a story that doesn't take off til Act II. Once it does, hold on, it's charged, provocative stuff. But why all the expositional murk?


    9. Though certainly in need of a red pen, this play from late in Arthur Miller's life (his last?) wows with its density of ideas being explored. Timely, relevant.




    10. Extremely thought-provoking play by Arthur Miller. What if the Messiah came today? Would concerns of advertising, contracts, and property values completely eclipse his message?
