Jesus Christ, Superstar might also benefit from a remake but songs like What's The Buzz might show the musical's age too much; but maybe with a strong Judas, Jesus and Mary Magdalene it might work.
I suspect I might be a rare fan of the movie, but yes, it is very dated
. Tim Minchin did Judas recently in London; wish I'd got a chance to see. And Chorus Line
is currently in revival as well; only one I haven't seen yet of the recent West End runs (Wicked, Little Shop..., Chicago, Guys & Dolls, Kiss Me Kate et al).
Hope not derailing too much, but are there any 'bad' musicals people here love? I have a soft spot for At Long Last Love, Lost Horizon
and Song of Norway
. And adore Ken Russell's The Boyfriend
. Guess I just love musicals in their infinite variety.
