Let’s say you want to make a musical about the Book of Exodus, but without getting too religious about the whole thing. You should probably de-emphasize the God bits. But when you remove from the Torah its raison d’être, what’s left? The answer that TheatreWorks’ “The Prince of Egypt” seems to want to give is that Exodus can be a tale about “ending an injustice.” That’s how Moses (Diluckshan Jeyaratnam) puts his plea for enslaved Jews’ freedom to his adopted brother Ramses (Jason Gotay), the newly appointed pharaoh But to leach spiritual import from a spiritual tale also is to sap its spirit. Religion without religion is just empty moral dualism. Good is good, and bad is bad.
