‘Jesus Christ Superstar’

Some might say it’s sacrilegous: watching an attractive Jesus bound around a stage singing ‘70s rock ballads, acting more like a conflicted human than the perfect Son of God he’s supposed to be. My devoutly Catholic mom? She had us watch the 2012 arena tour version starring comedian Tim Minchin in lieu of going to mass on Good Friday once. Whatever your feelings, it’s an Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice creation with songs that you’ll catch yourself singing for months afterward while doing the household chores, and considering the horror show that is the “Cats” remake, don’t you want to remember that Webber has actually contributed some good to this world?
