I am generally enraged by musicals, with few exceptions, but if you must endure one it might as well be one of his. When we lived in the hallowed Apartment 26, we would watch Jesus Christ Superstar with surprising frequency, and it was an experience about which I have nothing ironic to say. As a transposition of the Gospels into modern voice - though it is perhaps less "modern" now - it's Goddamned riveting, particularly as a lapsed believer. It gave me a sympathy for the figure of Christ that I never had as an actual disciple.
