Best Theatrical Impersonation of Jesus 

Ben Van Diepen

Boiler Room Theatre's revival of Jesus Christ Superstar was a flawed but tantalizing effort that transported its audience back to the hippie era. Still, anyone who saw the show had to admire Van Diepen's performance as Jesus. His singing and acting were fine, but the way he effected his crucifixion was pretty special. Theatergoers are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how he endured up on that cross, with nothing visibly holding him up save his own physical determination. It looked really real, too, with the nails in his hands and feet. Hosanna! —MARTIN BRADY
