50th Anniversary broadway Tour of Jesus Christ Superstar
Opening night gave us a treat, with understudy Jenny Mollet portraying the role of Mary Magdalene, who sang the iconic “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” in a lovely and soothing timbre.
Jenny Mollet, as Mary Magdalene, was superb. She’s listed in the program as an understudy to “Mary.” Her rendition of “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” was flawless.

Mention should also be made of Jenny Mollet, who did not have a named part but absolutely brought the house down with her solos in Wasteland and Generations.

Since making her Broadway debut in The Color Purple, Mollet graduated from the famed LaGuardia High School and is set to attend University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. It’s easy to get lost in a YouTube spiral of her performances, from boasting her comedic chops in “Alto’s Lament” to belting her face off to “Let It Go.” But it’s this mash-up of songs from The Polar Express and The Prince of Egypt that have us “believing” in Mollet; that kind of warmth is necessary for bringing such ballads as “Soon As I Get Home” and “Be a Lion” to life.
