ABSTRACT
The article explores the success of the television show "Superstar," created by musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber to cast actors for roles in his musicals. Topics include reception to the show's first season, in which actress Connie Fisher was cast as the lead in "The Sound of Music," a discussion of why the attempt to cast a singer in the main role of "Jesus Christ Superstar" is averaging less than 3 million viewers, and what Webber's lyricist, Tim Rice, had to say about the show's format.
