Fox’s ‘The Passion Live’ Will Have Pre-Taped Elements >>

Fox changed the live TV musical game when they added a live audience and a studio lot to 'Grease: Live.' This weekend Fox plans to top that, with 'The Passion,' spanning various locations throughout the city on New Orleans. However, it is going to take a miracle to pull of a live musical of that scale, and that miracle is called video tape. That is right. A portion of the “live” event will be pre-taped, with actual live elements added.
