John Legend, Sara Bareilles on Why They Couldn't Turn Down Jesus Christ Superstar

The live NBC television event airs on Easter Sunday.

When A-list singer-songwriters John Legend and Sara Bareilles, as well as A-list Broadway vet Brandon Victor Dixon, were presented with the opportunity of starring in a live broadcast of Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC, they couldn't say no. The Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice rock opera is a piece that's close to all of their hearts; with characters they can't wait to sink their teeth into. At a recent press junket, this triumvirate of actors, as well as directors David Leveaux and Alex Rudzinski, told us what we could expect on April 1, Easter Sunday.
