If you thought you had a bead on “Jesus Christ Superstar” — great rock score, elementary version of “the greatest story ever told” — the electric revival that opened Thursday night at the Neil Simon Theatre will induce serious second thoughts….”Jesus Christ Superstar” is indelibly a show of its time, but this production suggests that it was built to last.
-Robert Feldberg, Bergen Record
Hearing excellent singers deliver these tunes through powerful, crisp amplification is a primal thrill.
-Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
Brings “Superstar” to blazing life.
-Adam Feldman, Time out NY
This “Superstar” made me a believer again.
