The Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex is a multi-disciplinary neo-Vaudeville variety show, based on the ALBUM version (1970 recording) of the rock musical by Rice and Lloyd Webber. The concept is to “do” or “play” the entire album in order, in a celebratory, salon-like atmosphere. The evening will consist of performers each doing a piece based on one cut of the album (i.e., “Pilate’s Dream” or “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”). Pieces may be as simple as singing the song over a karaoke track or even dancing to the song off the record player. Or, they can be as complex as a full-on modern dance piece with spoken word obliquely alluding to the artist’s own messiah complex. Performances may be burlesque, drag, karaoke, serious, funny, moderne, classical, slick or slapdash! Some will be live, some will be pre-recorded for this new Zoom online world. The online “audience” will be provided with an online “hymnal” with the lyrics to sing along.
