Trivia

When Alice Cooper arrives on stage as Herod, the extras are bowing before him in an echo of the "We're Not Worthy" gesture from Wayne's World (1992). The first recipient of this accolade in film was Alice Cooper himself in the very same film. See more »

Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic!!!!
2 April 2018 | by aaverbeckSee all my reviews

I'll be honest I'm a musical theater geek and I have been very disappointed with the latest shows like hairspray and a Christmas story, but this has been amazing! NBC really hit the jackpot with this one! John legend puts his own spin on Jesus and Brandon Victor Dixon is a phenomenal performer as Judas and blew me away. I hope FOX and CBS and ABC take note from nbc and put on phenomenal performances like this one!
