2004: Mike Fryman as Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar"

The Lexington Shakespeare Festival went into extra auditions to find an actor for the title role in "Jesus Christ Superstar." Mike Fryman was attracted to the auditions by a Herald-Leader announcement headlined "Shakespeare Festival is looking for Jesus." His audition brought the search to a close. Photographer Charles Bertram portrayed Fryman in a classic Garden of Gethsemane pose.
