What Would Jesus Jam to?

The new musical The 12 at the Broward Center of the Performing Arts will tell the story of Jesus’ roadies through the music of the devil: Hellelujah! After their leader is bogusly slain, they’ll create more buzz than a backstage bag of coke. Each of the 12 apostles will spread the mighty word through various rock styles — from blessed Bowie-esque to faithful, Floydian fashion. Featuring former Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz, the live band will blast the audience into rock ’n’ roll Heaven with 18 original songs. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan teamed up with composer and lyricist Neil Berg (who’s other work includes the forthcoming Grumpy Old Men: The Musical) to create this odd and godly production. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Broward Center of Performing Arts’ Au-Rene Theater (201 SW Fifth Avenue Fort Lauderdale). Look forward to that rapturous encore. Tickets cost $25 to $55. Call 954- 462-0222, or visit browardcenter.org.
