Not the Messiah tells the tragic tale of Mandy, impregnated by a Roman soldier, giving birth to Brian, a reluctant revolutionary of the People's Front of Judea who falls in love with Judith, gets mistaken for a Messiah and is arrested by the Romans and sentenced to be crucified. The musical style jumps around in a "baroque 'n' roll" manner, reflecting pop, Welsh hymns, a naughty Mozart duet, country and western, doo-wop, hip hop, Broadway, Greek chorus and Bob Dylan (in his mumbling electric guitar and harmonica phase). Catch this riff on "The Life of Brian" at Bootless Stageworks in Wilmington.
