Heath Saunders as Jesus

 

“Heath Saunders’ Jesus has your heart from his very first note.”

— New City Stage

“Heath Saunders gives a heartbreaking and powerful performance as Jesus.”

— Picture This

 
 
 
 

“As Jesus, Heath Saunders has the luminous, otherworldly beneficence you’d expect from a messiah… you can feel the humanity living alongside the divinity.”

— Chicago Sun-Times

“Heath Saunders is a brilliant Jesus. His belting includes piercing high register notes that suggest he possesses vocal chords of cast iron. It’s a commanding multi-dimensional performance that Saunders delivers with gripping conviction. Seeing and hearing his Jesus may not evoke a religious experience in the viewer but on a dramatic and musical level Saunders is astonishing.”

— Chicago Land

Heath Saunders as Feste

 

“The standout of the show was Saunders as the fool Feste. In a crazy, topsy-turvy world, Saunders provided a surprisingly grounded presence, especially coming from a fool.”

— MD Theater Guide

 
 
 
 

“But it’s Saunders who owns the night. Whenever he shows up, it’s like someone gave you a key to the Admirals Club, and you can finally hear yourself think.”

— Washington Paper City

 “Of especial note are Heath Saunders’s Feste and Heath Saunders’s voice, of which I could have spent all night listening to and felt it time well-invested.”

— DC Metro Theater Arts

Heath Saunders as Performer

 
 

“15 members of Constellation Chor, an improvising vocal ensemble, sing and whisper through acoustic megaphones. The vocal harmonies were sometimes so astringently captivating, I was convinced they must have been carefully composed. Not so.”

— NY Times
