In the seventies JCS re-defined how musical theatre was produced.
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd-Webber brought theatre to rock music and rock music to theatre and people loved it.
This new interpretation has taken all that was best in the original production and given it an extra kick up the backside!
This is a kind of "West side story" meets the gospells.
Jesus and his disciples are seen as renegades and revelutionaries by the nazi-like Romans in Jerusalem.
jesus..is given a human touch...showing him as a complex and emtionally conflicted character. The same can be said for Judas whose devotion is conflicted by his feelings that something is wrong with the way Jesus is going about his work.
Gail Edwards pulls no punches in her emotional telling of the story (I defy anyone not to wince at the torture scene) thus giving the whole thing a harder, more real edge, that draws the viewer in.
Of all the performers only Rick Mayall dissapoints. He plays Herod as if he was a character from "The Young Ones". There is no emotion there at all.
Glenn cater shines as Jesus, again putting a human face on the character. When watching with a friend, I turned to see her crying during "Gethsemene".
Judas is as sinister as they come (Jerome Praden...stand up)but you still feel sorry for him.
Over all, this is a remarkable, but emotionally shattering version of the stage classic.

I brought this Dvd of Jesus christ superstar, with Glenn Carter. After watching the brillant production of Jesus christ superstar at the Opera House in Manchester. I had to watch it twice, i just love this musical. I now love the Dvd.
Glenn Carter stands out for me. His performance is fantastic, full off live, and expression. His singing is wonderful. I can't stop playing Getheseme. That song has always been my favourite.
This is a must for fans of Jesus Christ superstar. I can't wait to get the film with Ted Neeley on Dvd. I just have to mention my favourite Jesus's are Ted Neeley, Glenn Carter and Arvid Larsen who just finished playing Jesus christ superstar for 2001 tour.
This musical never gets old, with songs like Heven on their minds, Jesus Christ Superstar, Gethemane. People just don't write like that anymore. I have to go watch the Dvd again now.
Buy it, sit back, and see if you can stop yourself from singing along to the songs. I couldn't

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Almost thirty years ago...I`ve seen the play in London and I was quite amazed with what I saw in stage, I even brought with me the binoculars from the seats as a souvenir...
As a regular customer of Amazon, I have read all the comments regarding this particular production and have recently bought this DVD. I can only confirm what others keep saying...THIS IS BRILLIANT...to say the least.
The only point which I strongly disagree with most of the reviews posted, regards the Judas voice, I can agree that the performance, as an actor,is quite good and believable, but as a singer, please, for crying out loud, the guy has NO voice at all!!! Personally, I prefer the voice of Carl Anderson from the original motion picture.
On the other end, I was stunned with Pilate`s voice (yes, this is a voice)and performance.
My recomendation on this DVD can be only one...BUY IT!!!! whatever the cost may be-)))

This was the first professional production of Jesus Christ Superstar I came across, after having the pleasure of being involved in an amateur production at our school backstage. This production is a recording based on the production staged by Gale Edwards, which I also viewed live at Bristol last year. It is a revolutionary look at the musical - a completely different visual style to the 1973 video production... and boy does it work.
Instead of the swords and sands of the '73 version it is set mostly inside in some strange reality in which technology of the present can be seen ("Put away your sword," Jesus says to someone holding a machine gun,) but in the architectural style of revolutionaries in underground catacombes... (the opening overture rises above 'Liberty' and 'Democracy' graffiti.. as well as grafitti of a quote by George Orwell, interestingly enough) Visually, it works terrifically - particularly in the Overture, Superstar and Pilate & Christ. Again, visually it is very symbollic - about half way through the crowd - wearing their tie-die tee-shirts - change into a mob wearing complete black, appearing menacing... for this reason, the visualisations are also very symbollic. The lighting and costumes also add a lot this effect (a particular memory is Pontious Pilate in his huge military leather cloak...)
And now to the cast: Glenn Carter, I believe, provided quite a good Jesus in both the acting and the singing - far better than the 1973 version's Ted Neeley, although not, in my opinion, as strong as 1996's Steven Balsalmo, who's interpretation of Gethsemane is incredible. However, I've read many negative comments of his role in this film, and I don't believe that they are all entirely justified (in my opinion.
