African-American cast in Paramount's 'Superstar' reinvents those familiar songs

Chicago Tribune: If you are one of those people who know every note of "Jesus Christ Superstar," the anthemic rock opera penned as a concept album by a couple of pimply upper-class Brits named Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, you might be surprised by much of what you hear at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, where this perpetually popular and yet perennially bizarre show is enjoying a splashy new production with a formidably talented cast that really does have something new to give.
