On January 16, 2017, a concert of Jesus Christ Superstar was performed at Highline Ballroom to a capacity crowd. The music was as it always was. The pronouns remained the same. Not a lyric, or key, or tempo was altered. But there was something historically different – the female centered cast. They stood in the wings, the weight of national events on their minds, and the wind of the largest single-day protest in American history at their backs. The excitement was palpable.
From the downbeat of the Overture to the final chord of John 19:41, the audience was exalted by the power and glory of these fearless performers and their all-female band. Over the past many months, we have heard from you – “Are you going to record this?” The answer is yes.
Our intention is to capture the electricity of that night while honoring the landmark concept album that started it all. As you read this, we are confirming participation from the incredible artists we have invited to join us. Shoshana Bean will reprise her role as Judas Iscariot to Morgan James’ Jesus Christ, with many of that evening’s company in place.
If you were there, you know what I am talking about. If you weren’t there, now is your chance.
Digital download of the double studio album, including digital liner notes; a public thank you via our Instagram account @sheisrisen, and access to exclusive behind-the-scenes content and updates.
This acid washed unisex essential fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a soft poly-cotton blend, crew neck and short sleeves, and emblazoned with the iconic double angel logo.
