Godspell (Jesus) at the St. Louis MUNY - Burnham Reviews:

"From the first appearance of the very charismatic David Burnham as Jesus (in jeans and a white wife-beater T-shirt), things kick into gear and stay that way. Burnham managed to appear humble, serious, earnest, fun-loving and slightly bemused at his goofball apostles all at the same time, making for a charming and winsome performance, and my pick, by far, for Best in Show."
Robert A. Mitchell, KDHX Theatre Review

"David Burnham is outstanding as Jesus. He tolerates his followers, but is such a blend of charm and personality, that even when he rebukes them, he does so not in a judgmental, condemning way, that allows them, even in their simple mindedness to understand. Burnham has a rare blend of looks, charm—call it charisma—combined with a stage presence as well as an outstanding voice. Yet, he has the acting ability to take on the demanding role of Jesus.
