Yesterday, I was going to post a video in honor of
When Jesus Christ Superstar first premiered on Broadway, I was only 10 years old. I remember the photospread in Life Magazine. I also remember a bit of a controversy because it was a rock opera about Jesus and the week leading up to His crucificion.
It wasn't until the movie was released and the nuns took us to see the movie at the Isis Theater in Fort Worth that I actually got to hear the music and see a movie director's interpetation of the rock opera. I have viewed subsequent stage productions and it is still one of my favorite Andrew Lloyd Webber pieces.
