The role of King Herod is a flamboyant one, and Alice Cooper, 70, the King of Shock Rock, "lends rock authenticity," says Neil Meron, a producer of the NBC's live production of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. The new live concert-style staging of the 1971 rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, based on the final week in the life of Jesus, airs April 1 and also stars John Legend and Sara Bareilles. What the trailer below and tell us in the comments if you plan to watch Jesus Christ Superstar when it airs live from Brooklyn at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, April 1.
