How about a jungle-type thing? I'm thinking of something like the Monkey King in THE JUNGLE BOOK ("I Wanna Be Like You").


That'd be a show-stopper... everyone would leave, so the actors would eventually just stop.


Um... what? I don't understand.

Please translate.

Post Disco king
Although I am NOT using a hippie theme for my production of JCS, I will have Herod dressed as a 70's disco king, with glittery platform shoes, giant rings on his fingers, bell bottoms, open shirt, etc.etc. His boys/girls will be dressed similarly.

Herod represents excess, in all things and although I really like the idea of an omni-sexual herod, I wanted more than just a campy, swishing drag-like femme. Disco/70's Glam rock seems to be a good fit.

Watch The Mighty Boosh if you want some ideas of how to PLAY herod, if not design him.

"I LOVE incarceration,
I could lock up a platoon,
I'll be strapping up an inmate,
Very tightly, very soon.
So wave one bachelor goodbye,
She'll be your bride- she'd rather die
Than have her daddy ossify
In my sordid saloon..."
