Jesus Christ Superstar: Behind the Scenes of the Worldwide Musical Phenomenon (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


Almost thirty years after Rock Opera, his first book on Jesus Christ Superstar, Ellis Nassour returns to the world of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to complete the fascinating story of the Broadway musical that rocked the stage and pushed boundaries.

Nassour goes behind the scenes to show the evolution of Jesus Christ Superstar from an album to a Broadway musical, exploring not only the breakthroughs, but also the frustrations and pitfalls. With never-before-seen photos and new interviews, Superstar presents a detailed account of the life of the musical from 1969-1973.
