The 70’s Were Awesome

JesusChristSuperstar Ted Neeley

Because it’s Easter weekend (and I had had a few drinks), H and I watched Jesus Christ Superstar last night with some friends at a BBQ where we had earlier in the evening eaten a lot of steak. The irony was not lost on us.

Based on the rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JCS tells the story of Jesus’ rise, fall and rise again through song and dance. If you’ve never seen JCS, the video below will give you an idea of what it’s like.

It’s not my favorite musical (or my favorite ALW/TR collaboration), but it’s still pretty fun. It’s also directed by the guy who directed Rollerball (the original), so that’s pretty cool.
