After the success of Hair, several of the people involved in that production moved on to Jesus Christ Superstar. It opened at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney on May 4th, 1972 and was similarly a smashing success. Harry M. Miller produced again, Jim Sharman directed again, and Brian Thomson designed again. The orchestra leader and bassist from Hair were also involved. Once again there is a wonderful web page with a lot of information about this show: http://www.milesago.com/stage/superstar.htm
was cast as Jesus, and is featured on the cast album. In an interesting turn of events, Trevor White would later be asked to sing the part of Rocky Horror for The Rocky Horror Picture Show. His voice was dubbed in to the mono soundtrack for the film in post-production.
Reg Livermore (who later performed as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the 1974 Australian Cast of The Rocky Horror Show) would also join the show, in the role of Herod.
Jim Sharman and Brian Thomson were then asked to create the London West End production of Jesus Christ Superstar, which opened on August 9th, 1972 at the Palace Theatre. It ran for a record breaking 3,358 performances. It was at this London production of Jesus Christ Superstar that they would first meet Richard O'Brien. From this meeting, The Rocky Horror Show would then be created in London the following year.
