  • Commentary — How Ted Neeley became Jesus

    Ted Neeley, seated, will return to Yellow Springs to speak at three special showings of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Little Art Theatre, at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 and 11, and a sing-along event at 2 p.m. Nov. 12. He’s shown here with co-star Barry Dennen, who died recently. (Submitted photo)

    In the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar,” the first time that Jesus meets the Roman procurator who will sentence him to death is during a song called “Pilate and Christ.” For Ted Neeley, this scene was shared for decades by his dear friend, Barry Dennen. Just a few days before Neeley and I recently spoke, Barry had died suddenly.
