Jesus Christ Superstar: 2000

2000 NR

Accompanied by an inspiring score, director Gale Edwards's rock musical -- an updated stage version of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's acclaimed masterpiece -- follows the last seven days in the earthly life of Jesus. From Jesus's triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the enmity that this naturally arouses to his trial by the sympathetic but ultimately partisan Pontius Pilate, the passion of Jesus Christ is seen through the eyes of Judas.
