    No, it's not the original cast with Ian Gillian, but this London revival cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's and Tim Rice's musical Jesus Christ Superstar is still quite effective and sometimes brilliant. There are good arguments to be made for Glenn Carter's masterful and very modern performance as Christ, and Jerome Pradon's Judas Iscariot. This is less of a rock & roll performance to be sure, and far more theatrical along the lines of today's musicals, but that said, these performances are as emotional as they are showy. Say what you will about Webber and his later works and how stirring they are, but never was the music he composed any more emotional and deeply moving as it is here. Whether it's in the performance of "Gethsemane," or of Renee Castle's reading of "I Don't Know How to Love Him," (a song so closely associated with Yvonne Elliman it would almost seem sacrilegious to cover it outside a musical, though many did in the '70s), they come off as honest and convincing. ~ Thom Jurek
