Jesus Christ Superstar: A Man’s Role In A Divine Play

Every time I look at you, I don’t understand. Why’d you let the things you did get so out of hand?”

I would hear these lyrics on the albums that we had collected, CDs which we would play in the car or on stereos. My naive self assumed that it was an opening number for a play about the Crucifixion and the consequences for trying to keep the peace. Actually, no, it’s a finale for a musical where it ends in a great death, and a question about why the Crucifixion had to happen, what purpose did it serve.
