You’re probably already familiar with the story of Jesus. But you’ve never seen it like this! In Jesus Christ Superstar, the notorious disciple, Judas Iscariot, is the primary character. Before his famous betrayal, Judas was giving Jesus advice. He worries that Jesus’ followers are getting out of control, and Mary Magdalene should not have any place near the messiah. However, Jesus ignores his warnings and continues to preach and gather more followers. Caiaphas, the high priest of Israel, also grows wary of Jesus’ massive following. Thus, he plots to have Jesus executed. Viewers will find that the light depiction of Christ’s passion also contains notable events, such as the healing of the Lepers, the illegal market at the temple, and the crucifixion.

Jesus Christ Superstar first debuted on Broadway in 1970. The music was based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1970 rock opera album of the same name. The show received numerous accolades, including multiple nominations, a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, and a Theatre World Award. Two years after opening in New York, the musical debuted in London’s West End. Over the years, there have been several revivals of the iconic musical. In 2022, the musical celebrated its 50th anniversary with a North American Tour. Jesus Christ Superstar has become one of the most commercially-successful musicals of all time. By 1980, the show has grossed over $237 million. A true cultural phenomenon, Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the longest running musicals of all time, with several interpretations from different directors and creative teams.

“As much as the story of Jesus Christ may be timeless, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ is definitely a show from the early 1970s that is very much of its time. The influences of the late 1960s and early 1970s music are felt through every song.” – Andrew Haynes from Attraction Magazine.

“Drew McOnie’s choreography is perhaps the star of the show, as he deftly uses the large ensemble to fill the stage and create the mood. This production and this cast are a perfect way to experience the show for the first time or to revisit an old favorite.” – Nicole Ackman from BroadwayWorld.

“The 50th-anniversary tour of “Jesus Christ Superstar” is dynamite. This is a big, pumped-up, go-for-broke staging, delivered with vocal heft and passion. It packs a wallop.” – Paul Hyde of Greenville Journal.
