Critic Reviews for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert
This Superstar was the closest that live television has come to creating a hybrid new form, combining elements of epic cinema, the stage musical, and the concert film. It's a minor miracle.
Buoyed by that striking production with its industrial, modern urban vibe and a star-making performance by Brandon Victor Dixon as Judas, "Jesus Christ Superstar" provided plenty of thrills for musical-theater fans.
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.
