NBC’s live version of the Broadway musical classic Jesus Christ Superstar has added more big names to its cast. The new theatrical production will air on Easter Sunday April 1.

CONGRATS goes to Power actor Brandon Victor Dixon who will portray Judas, Daytime Divas star Norm Lewis as Caiaphas along with  Jason Tam as Peter, Ben Daniels as Pontius Pilate, Jin Ha as Annas and Erik Gronwall as Simon Zealotes. 

As previously announced, Grammy-winner John Legend is Jesus Christ and rock-n-roll legend Alice Cooper is King Herod.

Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion.

S/O to my buddy and accomplished dance choreographer Juel D. Lane. He will also appear in the live production as one of the show’s dancers.

Stay tuned…
