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?
