The Passion Play
vent that only happened every 10 years as my primary attraction, I might be tempted to do the same. But the play; I found it difficult to relate to any of the main "good guys". Jesus seemed to be screeching at everybody, Mary Magdalene was not convincing, even Mary wasn't quite right. I suppose the German language isn't the easiest language to sound passionate in, Alles klingt so hart, wie eine Reihe von Befehlen. Maybe I've been watching too many WWII movies, or perhaps Colonel Klink is forever etched in the recesses of my mind, I just can't make a German Jesus work for me. Perhaps the irony of the whole Christ story is that, like the play, the bad guys, especially Pilate, really did steal the show. My search continues.
