JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Behind the Scenes of the Worldwide Musical Phenomenon

By Ellis Nassour

“Ellis Nassour has given us an utterly invaluable tome about Jesus Christ Superstar from the perspective of someone who witnessed much of it up close. Dense with information about the planning and machinations of putting this extraordinary musical together and filled with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen photographs, this should be on every JCS fan’s shelf!”

– Gibson DelGiudice, producer, author of Impressions of a Crucifixion, and co-creator of JCS Zone

JCS Zone was privileged and honored to be part of the research process for this new book from the author of Rock Opera, the original opus on the creation of JCS from the initial “Superstar” single to the 1973 film’s release. This fresh volume promises to continue the story, incorporating new information about the past half-century as well as covering the 50 years that followed. Click the book cover above to be directed to the official website, or visit our Box Office page in the Nav.Bar to be directed to information about promotional appearances (book signings, Q&As, etc.) where you can meet Ellis Nassour — and, sometimes, JCS Zone’s admin — in person!

Oh my lord

April 13, 2023

Being in Australia I grew up with the ‘92 cast recording that my parents and sister played on repeat. I didn’t see the film until much later when the national broadcaster (ironically or not) played it on Good Friday, and with nothing else on TV I watched it.

I was blown away. Particularly by Carl Anderson and Barry Dennen. I wasn’t all that convinced by Ted Neeley until Gethsemane, but that changed my mind. The way these three performers portray being caught up in events where they must play their part and do terrible things without having any control, but do them anyway… it gets me every time. “Everything is fixed, and you can’t change it.”

The quote from Norman Jewison above:

“People are going to see it in drive-ins and neighborhood nowhere theaters and they’re going to be moved by it. People who were never moved by this story before. People who always thought that Jesus Christ was some kind of a schmuck. They’re going to see something beautiful and they’re going to cry. They won’t be able to help themselves.”

That’s exactly what effect it had on me. Not having a religious upbringing I’d not known the story well, and I’ve since learned that Judas’s motivations depicted in the film are a somewhat radical interpretation of the Bible, but it’s the version that works for me.

After finding this site I’m keen to track down and listen to some other versions, but I think this one will be hard to top.
