The Sound of the Crowd

Poor old Judas, good old judas

Carl Anderson, the singer/actor who played Judas in the film of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” has died of leukemia at 58. I’m a fan of that piece/film, and especially Anderson’s character and performance, so I thought I’d take note of it here. He had also understudied the part, to Ben Vereen, on Broadway and had a schmaltzy hit single in 1986 with Gloria Loring. Other than that and a part or two in films, his career seems to have come down to revival after revival of JCS. Which is too bad, but on the other hand, better than some.

Well done, Judas…
