***** Highly Recommended ***** I have loved the music of “Jesus Christ Superstar” since I first heard the album back in the’70s. I loved it so much I got a babysitter so I could see the first touring production in 1971. That said, I think that Paramount Theatre’s production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” is magnificent. This cast is far and away the best I’ve ever heard. I was blown away when the entire cast gathered onstage for an a cappella rendition of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. 4 BIG Spotlights
