I'm getting more and more excited about the live production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" coming to NBC on Easter Sunday evening. Last week we found out that John Legend would be portraying Jesus and that Alice Cooper would be playing King Herod. Over the weekend we found out that Sara Bareillis (Love Song, Brave, Waitress) would be portraying Mary Magdalene. I'm all in on this. I think it's going to be such a great show! I can't wait to see it!!!
“To say I’m excited about this performance is the understatement of the century,” Bareilles shares. “This score and this musical have been a part of me from a very young age and it will be one of the great thrills of my life to sing these iconic songs.” She adds, “I feel extremely lucky to be a part of the project!”
I'm all in on this, what about you? Don't forget to watch Easter Sunday, April 1st on NBC!!
