Answer given - blah blah blah about religion and Burning Man
Alternate Answer - Hey bud - it's Burning Man. If you can pull it off - go for it.

Answer given - a few people picked up on this - yay.
Alternate Answer - Yeah - the music is great and it is a fun musical/rock opera to see in person! IN addition, if by envirnment you mean heat, dust, wind, and desert - it might lend atmospherically to the piece.

Potential answer - Unless you were playing Jesus, then that crucifiction thing would really suck ass! Honestly though - good concept, but just be aware that some people's acceptance levels of something they could see as blatantly religious might not be as high as one would expect from burners. Some would be on board because the performers would be giving the gift of entertainment and others might be offended because of personal reasons.

Potential answer - So what - are you trying to stir shit up?!? Just kidding. In all honesty - it is Burning Man - if you think it is a cool idea - YOU create the spark and see what you can come up with and who gives a fuck what other people think.
Just get your ass out there and have fun!! See you on the playa!
Just a thought....
PS - Or - what Tom said!!
