Pikes Pick: Rockin' out on Easter

The ageless rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar" comes to TV as a three-hour, live Easter concert on NBC. Music you've heard for years, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, is not to be missed.

And the stars? John Legend as Jesus, Alice Cooper and Sara Bareilles. What a different addition to Easter weekend with this rocking theatrical approach to Jesus' approaching death as seen by the bad guy, Judas Iscariot (Brandon Victor Dixon from "Hamilton"). Airs 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, and it will play to an interactive in-theater audience as well as on live TV.
