JESUSMANIA! update (2)

The Fall 2016 Friends of Musselman Library Newsletter has two pieces of interest. My “Research Reflections” article details the processes of discovering and writing about the Superstar production, while “Remembering 9/12” focuses on the Ground Zero memorabilia donated to Musselman Library by Rev. Larry Recla, the production’s director-coordinator (and pretty much the “superstar” of Jesusmania!). I was fortunate enough to be able to curate Larry’s materials as an exhibit, which has been on display at the library during the Fall 2016 semester. I also videotaped Larry’s sermon, on the subject of his Ground Zero experience, at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg on September 14, 2016

JESUSMANIA! update (1)

On June 4, 2016, Gettysburg College held its annual Reunion Weekend. The Class of 1971, celebrating its 45th anniversary, graciously invited me to give a presentation on my Superstar research. That was followed by a panel discussion with original performers and planners. The two-hour event was videotaped. You can watch the presentation here, and the panel here.
