* HeyItsThatGuy: Victor Garber (Jesus) stuck to Broadway shows for many years afterwards, keeping his profile low. Then he appeared in ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'', ''Series/{{Alias}}'', ''Film/{{Argo}}'', ''Series/TheFlash2014''. He had bulked up a bit and balded with age, but once you see it's Jesus it's hard to unsee.

* The script has a note that explains why there is no resurrection: the play isn't really about Jesus, it's about the community he builds and how it continues after he's gone. Of course, many productions ignore this and throw in a resurrection scene at the end anyway.
