The Ten Commandments: The Musical

Readers of this blog with long memories and an inordinate fondness for Bible movies may remember that, a year and a half ago, I mentioned in passing that Val Kilmer — the voice of Moses (and God) in The Prince of Egypt (1998) — had also starred in a stage musical called The Ten Commandments. If you missed your chance to see this production live at the Kodak Theatre, then have no fear, it is apparently coming out on DVD next Tuesday. Could be interesting to see how Kilmer’s singing voice compares to that of Amick Byram, who provided the singing voice for Moses in The Prince of Egypt — and by the way, if you go to Byram’s website, it plays his performance of ‘All I Ever Wanted’ from that soundtrack!

    I saw this when it played the Kodak Theatre in L.A. It’s a real stinker, but the grandiose sets are impressive. I’m almost certain Kilmer forgot a few of his lines. I can tell you he ain’t no Chuck Heston.
