** The 2018 version even gives us ''Pilate/Jesus''. Pilate sounds incredibly anguished - beyond fearing eternal damnation - as he's on his knees, practically begging Jesus to give him a reason to keep the Son of God alive.

* EvenBetterSequel: In the sense that it's a followup on ''Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat''. Although ''Dreamcoat'' is well-loved for being Webber's BreakthroughHit, ''Superstar'' is counted among his masterpieces such as ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' and ''Theatre/{{CATS}}''.

Added DiffLines:

** Mary Magdalene (whose characterization as a former prostitute is AlternativeCharacterInterpretation all by itself) gets scenes that show her to be spiritual and in tune with Jesus' message. However, seen through Judas' eyes, she comes off as a Yes-Man constantly telling Jesus that "everything's alright" rather than confronting him about the building problems, as Judas tries to do.

* VindicatedByHistory: With Christians, since when the musical first came out many were outraged claiming it was blasphemous not helped by how this was around the height of the "[[RockMeAsmodeus rock and roll]] [[EveryoneIsSatanInHell is Satanic]]" era. But over the years, this mindset has cooled down and if anything are happy that they have a somewhat mainstream story about the Passion. In fact, the 2018 live version seemed to have Christians in mind considering how it was released on Easter and many religious organizations and media groups bought ad time.

** The 2014 Swedish Arena dials up the HoYay and [[UpToEleven breaks the knob off]]. It starts with Judas singing "Heaven on their Minds" to a sleeping Jesus with lots of longing looks and lingering touches. Also, the kiss with which Judas betrays Jesus is a full-on BigDamnKiss: no cheek or forehead kissing here!
