Last night, in celebration of Easter Sunday, NBC continued their recent trend of live stage musical broadcasts with a newly adapted production of Jesus Christ Superstar starring John Legend as JC, Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene, Alice Cooper as King Herod, and an immensely talented group of performers to round out the cast.While several highly touted live TV musicals have aired over the last several years, this new adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s cult classic 1970 rock opera was the first to be filmed in front of a large live audience with live musical accompaniment. The teleplay was staged at Marcy Armory and has received rave reviews, with virtually every review noting the palpable energy afforded to the performance by the live audience and accompaniment.One particular member of the backing band will look familiar to Live For Live Music’s readers: young guitar wizard Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, who served as a featured soloist during a number of the show’s songs (including its opening number), augmenting the guitar work of band members Tim Quick and Dylan Kondor (pictured above).Taz, of course, has plenty of experience working with the decorated Andrew Lloyd Webber. He originated the role of Zack Mooneyham in the Broadway production of School of Rock: The Musical (music by Webber), and recently made a ripping guest appearance at the special 30th-anniversary performance of Webber’s 1986 hit musical Phantom of the Opera.You can check out a couple of Taz’s appearances below.
