Jesus Christ Superstar è ormai passato alla storia come uno dei Musical più famosi e amati di tutti i tempi, nel mondo intero. La versione italiana in lingua originale firmata da Massimo Romeo Piparo in 21 anni vanta ormai numerosi record, 11 anni in cartellone in Italia, oltre 1.500.000 spettatori, più di 120 artisti che si sono alternati nel cast, e più di 1.200 rappresentazioni. La chiave del grande successo sta nell’ottimale combinazione fra la musica rock, il musical e una grande storia immortale.
Jesus Christ Superstar, the masterpiece of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, is now known to history as one of the most famous and beloved musical of all time, worldwide. The Italian production, originally directed by Massimo Romeo Piparo 21 years ago, played in Italian theaters from 1995 to 2006, with more than 1.1 million audience members, more than 120 artists appearing in the cast, and more than 1,200 performances. The key to its success is its perfect combination of rock music, and a great, immortal story.
On stage with Ted Neeley, are Italian musical theatre stars, including Feisal Bonciani (Judas), Simona Distefano (Mary Magdelene), Emiliano Geppetti (Pilate), Paride Acacia (Annas), Francesco Mastroianni (Caiaphas), Salvador Axel Tornsi (Herod), Claudio Compagno (Simone), and Italian Francesco (Peter).
Also on stage will be a live 12-piece orchesra live 12 items, conducted by Emanuele Friello, and an ensemble of 24 between acrobats, stilt walkers, fire eaters and dancers choreographed by Roberto Croce. The set was design by Giancarlo Muselli and built by Teresa Caruso, and the costumes were designed by Cecilia Betona.
Last season, the show achieved the most important success with audiences and critics in recent years. It returns as part of EXPO 2015 in Milan, an event for the city and for its international audience, with worldwidely-known, exceptional actor Ted Neeley, who achieved a mythical and indelible imprint mythical in the role of Jesus in Norman Jewison's historic 1973 film. EXPO 2015 will be the perfect setting for this world-class musical, performed with live orchestra in the original English language. And, in October, this great musical will arrive at the Gran Teatro Geox in Padova for 2 incredible dates!

* TED HAS HIS OWN WEBSITE(S)!!!
Ted's new Tour website came online as NeeleyTour.com in late September/early October, 2012, in conjunction with the announcement of the Ted Neeley and The Little Big Band tour. It can still be reached under the NeeleyTour URL, but is also reachable as tedneeley.com. It has become Ted's main personal info site, and is now being used for JCS in Italy dates, the JCS 49th Anniversary Screening Events, and includes a publicity photo gallery, a Tour Date tab which shows current and past JCS Screening Dates and past LBB tour dates, Ted's updated bio, a "Webstore" page link (under Tinman Merchandising as The Ted Neeley Official Webstore) now boasting T-Shirts, Programs, Glossies, the Workin' for the Words CD, the remastered 1974AM CD, the Rock Opera CD, and JCS Italy merchandise ), a press release page, and a contact page. Here's the link:
TED'S OFFICIAL FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM AND YOUTUBE LINKS:
Ted's daughter Tessa started these pages for the "Ted Family."
Ted's NOTR website came online fully on 3/13/07! It included a page for a letter from Ted, a photo gallery - with some great rehearsal/backstage/cast party pictures, a Tour Date tab which showed JCS tour dates for all four legs of the 2006-2009 AD tour, (info on this tour can also be found in the files and calendar for the First Ted Neeley List Yahoogroup (www.movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/firsttedneeleylist)), a "Ted Shop" page (now under Tinman Merchandising as The Ted Neeley Official Webstore, and boasting a collector's limited edition t-shirt and a new limited edition poster, both designed by Zack) as well as CD's, glossies, and many other specialty "Ted Items"), and a contact page (with the Webmaster's e-mail). There was also a guestbook, which Ted had originally posted on whenever he had the time (a very rare commodity!). The site is apparently inactive, and seems to be completely offline. Hopefully, the site will reappear in the future. Here's the original link:

The 2012 choice for the "FTNL Ted's Birthday / Christmas Present " was to make a special calendar with the dates from Ted's tour, and some career highlights. The calendar was presented to Ted on 3/23/13 at the M&G after the Ted Neeley and the Little Big Band performance in Cleveland at the Ohio Theatre. Ted LOVED the calendar, and since he said he didn't even know when those career dates were, he would be scouring that calendar all night. :-) See the presentation picture below:
The 2010 choice for the "FTNL Ted's Birthday / Christmas Donation" is, again: Rubicon Theatre Company. Here is their website donation link:
The 2009 choice for the "FTNL Ted's Birthday / Christmas Donation" is: Rubicon Theatre Company's "It Takes A Village" campaign Here is their website link: Rubicon Theatre Company's It Takes A Village. I presented Ted with the FTNL plaque on 3/6/10 in Cleveland, while he was on tour with JCS' 4th leg (see photo below), and I presented Jim O'Neil with another FTNL plaque on 2/12/10 at RTC in Ventura (poor Karyl Lynn Burns was not able to be at the theatre, as she had been recovering from a major bout of Stomach Flu that she caught from Jim), but if you'd like to help us donate to this very worthy theatre, donations are ongoing, and your name will be listed in Rubicon's 2010 "The Miracle Season" programs along with other list members who have already donated through FTNL in honor of Ted's Birthday and Xmas 2008. You may also e-mail me at my e-mail link just above the "LINKS" section of this page. Of course, whether or not you wish to donate, you are welcome to join FTNL at any time!
