Having always liked the musical , I thought that it really was never recorded as a Rock show as advertised . This CD proves that theatre is comming on along way with a stella cast and a great orchestrea , this is Jesus Christ Supper Star at it's BEST . Led by Steve Balsamo the cd includes wonderful interpretations of such classic songs as Everythings Alright , I Don't Know How To Love Him and King Herods Song . Joanna Ampil (best known for her role as Kim in Miss Saigon)again manages to steal the lime light bringing such heart to the role of Mary Magdenlene , never before truly captured on disc . The cast is very strong , though I do think Alice Cooper was a strange choice for the role of herrod , bring nothing new to a great role .
