Throughout, I kept wishing for a better balance of energy... But when it did find it, it verged briefly on miraculous.

Led by an ethereal John Legend, the show's talented cast breathed new life into Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's 1970 rock opera.

[Sara] Bareilles was excellent as Mary Magdalene, bringing warmth, commitment, and distinction to her songs.

But by the grace of God, or maybe a great cast and lots and lots of expert staging, a great musical became a great TV production.

April 2, 2018 | Full Review…

But from the multicultural cast to its deconstruction of religious iconography, this Jesus Christ Superstar was as thoughtful and challenging as the show has ever been.

April 2, 2018 | Full Review…

This seemed like a very successful experiment, in the end. The strength of the performances, the smartly controlled staging, the quality of the music and the mix of Broadway and album-cutting talent worked well.
