Theater Gone Wrong: John Legend Misses a Cue in Big River

Legend hopes to redeem himself in the title role of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar for NBC.

The last time music superstar John Legend did theater, it was a local production of Big River. During one performance, he missed a cue…and things went south from there. Now getting ready to play the title role in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, Legend is hoping to redeem himself…and that nothing will go wrong on national television.
