Move Over, Charlton Heston

A musical version of the Moses story enjoyed a brief run at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles during the winter of 2004-2005. But for those who missed it, there is still hope.

A DVD version of the show, which is called “The Ten Commandments: The Musical” and stars screen idol Val Kilmer (right), is set to be released in November. Kilmer is no stranger to playing the role of a longhaired singing prophet; in 1991, he played Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s “The Doors.”
