Original Broadway production
Jesus Christ Superstar the Musical - Overture

The Overture is heard over images
of a troupe preparing their version of the Passion Play.
They arrive out inm the Israeli desert in a bus with a cross attached
to the roof along with many other props.
As the performers unload off of the bus you get a feeling
of celebration so often attributed to the late 60s, early 70s.
They costume themselves.
When the overture  exchos the '39 lashes',
they remove the cross from the roof
and when the overture breaks into a jubilant "Superstar",
we are introduced to Jesus appearing
from a pile of people... Could we start?
