JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR – Spring 2017

Lyrics by Tim Rice – Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Directed by John Luther

Jesus Christ Superstar
TM © 1996 The Really Useful Group Limited

 

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is presented through and exclusive arrangement with R & H Theatricals and Two Knights Rights Limited www.rnh.com
