Jesus Christ Superstar

This week my wife had tickets to Jesus Christ Superstar at the Arvada Center.  I am moderately religious, but don't know too much about the story of Jesus Christ and his betrayal by Judas.  As a result, I was not looking forward to the production.

However, I must say the musical was absolutely incredible.  It was actually a rock opera originally debuting in 1970 and featuring music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.  The cast and orchestra exceeded my already high expectation for Arvada Center productions.

If you are a fan of live performance, you will be impressed and I would recommend it to all audiences.  I cannot vouch for how accurately it conveys the dynamic between Jesus Christ and Judas.  I can vouch that it was a tremendous production rivaling any others I have seen.
