Emmy-nominated Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert costumes on display...

On Easter Sunday this year NBC continued its recent trend of live musical events and broadcast Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert with an all-star cast including John Legend as 'Jesus', Sara Bareilles as 'Mary Magdalene', Brandon Victor Dixon as 'Judas', Ben Daniels as 'Pontius Pilate' and Alice Cooper as 'King Herod'. This television adaptation of the rock opera garnered thirteen Emmy Award nominations, including for Costume Design, and even took home the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Live).

Paul Tazewell was the Emmy-nominated Costume Designer on this NBC musical special, along with Assistant Costume Designers Laaleh Mizani and Heather Lockard and Costume Supervisor Rory Powers.

This cool collection of costumes from Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert were part of the 12th annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum on August 21, 2018.

I especially like Alice Cooper's King Herod suit which comes adorned with a pattern of skulls and the faces and bodies of tortured souls.

If you're a musicals fan, be sure to also check out these costumes and props from NBC's Peter Pan Live and these Hairspray Live costumes too.
