Adapted from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Broadway rock opera, ''Jesus Christ Superstar'' recounts the last days of Jesus Christ from the perspective of Judas Iscariot, his betrayer. As Jesus' following increases, Judas begins to worry that Jesus is falling for his own hype, forgetting the principles of his teachings and growing too close to the prostitute Mary Magdalene . After Jesus has an outburst in a temple, Judas turns on him.
