STAGE TUBE: On This Day 12/21 - JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTARSTAGE TUBE: On This Day 12/21 - JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
by Stage Tube - Dec 21, 2013

Today in 1970, JESUS CHRIST SUERSTAR creators Andrew Lloyd Webber and Time Rice received gold records for the original cast album of the show. The musical started off as a rock opera concept recording before its first staging on Broadway in 1971. The musical is based very loosely on the Gospels' account of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem, and ending with the crucifixion. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, struggles that are not in the Bible. The resurrection is not included. It therefore largely follows the form of a traditional Passion Play. (more...)
