Ever thought to yourself, "Hey, this Jesus guy seems like a cool dude, but you know what he's missing? Leather and rock 'n' roll!" Well then, NBC has got the show for you.
The story takes place in the final week of Jesus' life as he gains notoriety as "King of the Jews," leading all the way up to his crucifixion. Spoiler alert: Jesus dies. Other key players in the show include Judas (Brandon Victor Dixon), Mary Magdalene (Sara Barielles), King Herod (Alice Cooper) and Pontius Pilate (Ben Daniels).
In addition to a small trailer, NBC has also released a look behind the scenes at rehearsals for the show and the creation of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, in which the cast calls the show "a roller coaster of emotions." What else can you expect from one of the most iconic stories of all time?
Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert airs Easter Sunday, April 1 at 8/7c on NBC.
