A bit of cultural literacy I missed, tonight we are watching a stage production of the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar."
I will answer all questions.
Postscript: This was a rock opera in the sense everything was sung, unlike a musical where the actors recite lines of exposition between songs to move things along and build drama. The result was that I missed out on many of the dramatic moments because of not being familiar with the details of the story. Still, I loved the dancing and excellent music. And I did have enough knowledge to understand the ending -- crucifixion.
