Welcome To The Bitchery

I love this version. Jerome Pradon plays Judas and Glenn Carter as Jesus. Rene Castle as Mary. This is shown on Masterpiece Theater and it is a filmed version of the stage play. A Nazi like regime is the setting.

This unlike 1973 is very claustrohic and lots of steel and concrete. The openning between Jesus and Judas is vastly different then the 1973 version. Judas sings most of the number right in Jesus face. Jesus literally is trying to ignore him.

Here is the entire thing in 27 parts. https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

The ending song, theme song, bookends the openning number with Judas once again singing literally in Jesus face taunting him. Although now Judas has a chorus.
