Jesus Christ Superstar is an spectacular production that was always destined for critical acclaim. It was first released as a concept album musical before the musical was ever created and staged. The original album had the part of Jesus played and sung by Ian Gillan and quickly found acclaim for its inspired take on the biblical tale. And it was later performed on stage in July 1971 in front of 13,000 spectacular fans at Pittsburgh. After facing lots of debate it was finally brought to the Broadway stage on October 12, 1971. Since then this hit show had become a celebrated staple on the musical scene. And this latest revival is no different. Stunning Broadway star Aaron LaVigne takes center stage and leads a five-star cast to tell this incredible story.
