New ‘Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert’ Trailer Shows Off Eclectic Cast

NBC has released the first video teaser for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, and it sure looks like a doozy. The show stars Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene, singing a snippet of “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, along with John Legend as Jesus himself and Alice Cooper as Herod.

The teaser is fast-paced, showing our modern Jesus being led off-stage as Mary Magdalene looks on in fear. Billing Tim Rice and Andrew Llyod Weber’s creation as “the greatest story ever told”, the teaser promises this is a one-night-only extravaganza as Legend dances in a tight white t-shirt.

Naturally, the show airs on ABC Easter Sunday (April 1st). Do you think it counts as going to church?
