    A Glitzy Execution in a Religious Revival

    Charles Isherwood

    March 22, 2012: Spoiler alert! Oh, just kidding. It will surely come as a surprise to no one that the title character in “Jesus Christ Superstar” does not come to a happy end, drifting blissfully into old age and obscurity on the sands of Judea. His gruesome death is depicted with unusually lavish flair in the director Des McAnuff’s flashy revival of the pop-rock musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber that opened Thursday night at the Neil Simon Theater.

    A very serious 'Jesus Christ Superstar'

    Linda Winer

    March 22, 2012: Satire and the Crucifixion have always been the uneasy partners in "Jesus Christ Superstar." They are impossibly incompatible, of course. And yet their friction has powered the show's audacity since 1970, when a couple of young British guys named Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice (or their record producer) invited the press to a church to sit and listen to their newfangled concept album -- a pop opera.
