Jesus Christ Superstar
Part of our 12th Annual Summer Film Fest!
Adapted from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Broadway rock opera, “Jesus Christ Superstar” recounts the last days of Jesus Christ (Ted Neeley) from the perspective of Judas Iscariot (Carl Anderson), his betrayer. As Jesus’ following increases, Judas begins to worry that Jesus is falling for his own hype, forgetting the principles of his teachings and growing too close to the prostitute Mary Magdalene (Yvonne Elliman). After Jesus has an outburst in a temple, Judas turns on him.
Directed by Norman Jewison. Starring Ted Neeley, Carl Anderson, Yvonne Elliman, and Barry Dennen. 1973. Rated G. One hour, 46 minutes.
