Muppets On Their Mind: Muppet Christ Superstar Parody by Christopher Graham Released on BandCamp (Audio)
16 Apr 2014
Muppet Christ Superstar, an audio parody of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar featuring Christopher Graham as the voices of the classic Muppet characters by Jim Henson, has been released on BandCamp.
Graham's parody album, released March 5, features Kermit as Jesus Christ, Gonzo as Judas Iscariot, Piggy as Mary Magdalene, Fozzie as Simon the Zealot, Pepe as Pilate and Rowlf as King Herod with The Electric Mayhem as the Disciples.
"This is a not-for-profit parody created for entertainment purposes only," Graham said on his BandCamp website. "I do not own the rights to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber or the likenesses of Jim Henson's Muppets, unfortunately. I'd be a whole lot cooler if I did."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
