I lived in NYC growing up and saw Ted Neeley as JC on Broadway around 1970. Nearly wore out the JCS soundtrack album listening to the songs. It had a powerful effect on me and has always been my all-time favorite show. This production was not nearly as good as I expected. Even considering that Ted is about 40 years older now, I was a bit disappointed with how strained and scratchy his voice sounded, although when he needs to he can still roar like his old self--marketplace, last supper, garden of gethsamane--Wow! James Delisco was excellent as a heart-sick agonized Judas. The sound/mic system seemed to be inconsistent--fading in and out at times. Felt like a cheap production. It was a blast from the past to see Ted Neeley reprise the role one more time-- although I prefer my memories of the show from 40 years ago, not the one I saw yesterday.
<p> </p> <p> </p> <p>Jesus Christ Superstar, the groundbreaking theatrical masterpiece by the legendary writing team of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, is coming back to the stage.</p> <p>The first collaboration between Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber to be performed on the professional stage, Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the most popular and enduring works ever created for the musical theatre. Featuring such notable songs as "Superstar," "Everything's Alright" and "I Don't Know How to Love Him," Jesus Christ Superstar earned five Tony nominations.</p> <p>Set in two acts, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Superstar dramatizes Jesus' entry in Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his preaching and popularity, his betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. Perpetually changing the face of musical theatre Jesus Christ Superstar, will leave audiences captivated by its power.</p>
About the Ticket Supplier: Warner TheatreThe Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.
The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
