Coming Easter Sunday, April 1st, 2018, NBC will present Jesus Christ Superstar Live.
The musical will feature the King Of Shock Rock Alice Cooper as King Herod, which shouldn’t be too hard for him as he’s already played the role back in 2000 when he joined the cast of the 1996 London revival of the show.

The NBC made-for-TV production will be directed by five-time Tony award nominee David Leveaux.
The son of a preacher & a rock star that isn’t ashamed to talk about his Christian faith will have one song to sing in the musical, “King Herod’s Song (Try It And See)”.
