My all time favorite musical (although I've never actually seen a production) opened on Thursday! The revival production of Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice's "Jesus Christ Superstar", a rock opera looks amazing! From the word on the newsstands, Mr. Nolan (Jesus) is pretty darn impressive. And that's a hard part! In the past, there has been some debate over the fact that it is such glitzy, hard rock production since it's featuring the last human days of Jesus before his crucifixion. Also, it was criticized for not featuring the resurrection. Regardless, the music is phenomena. I mean, come on... Rock and opera combined? Sweet!
