Have you seen the new version of it? I think it was done down under.
Sarah Brightman played Mary in that one she didn't do too bad a job either.
I prefer Yvonne Elliman's version. But Sarah Brightman has a great voice..

Haven't seen that new version but FYI, Sarah Brightman used to be married to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. My guess is that it made a few years back when they were still married because I heard rumor (can't confirm it) that part of the divorce decree, she is no long allowed to sing any of Webber's music.

Thats gotta be a rumor. Sarah Brightman performed at Sir Andrew' B-Day bash after their divorce(its a great dvd its called, The Royal Albert Hall Celebration)

I hated the new Jesus Christ Superstar, it suk'd. The songs were great of course, but the show, King Herods song looked like Potifer's song in "Joseph", and the soldiers are Nazis. I couldn't even watch the whole thing
