I’ve been a fan of “Jesus Christ Superstar” since I was a child when my mom took me to see first the movie, then the actual theater production, in the 70s.

I then had a chance to see the 1992 touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” with the movie’s stars Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson.

So I super excited to see the current touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” celebrating 50 years of the show, which is at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando this week.

This production is different from what I’ve experienced before, but it was still very thrilling to watch.
