Jesus Christ Superstar is the second musical collaboration between the creative dream team of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice. The duo found the inspiration for this work in the Bible itself, as the play is loosely based on the Gospel interpretation of Jesus’ last few days. However, Webber and Rice flipped the notion of a secular play on its head by turning their work into a 1970s rock opera filled with fast-paced musical numbers that audience members couldn’t get out of their heads.
Jesus Christ Superstar originally debuted on Broadway in October of 1972 with Broadway legend Ben Vereen starring as Judas Iscariot, and since then the musical has been staged across the globe with many different casts. The smash hit was most recently on Broadway in 2012 with a production that Webber himself called "the best acted version of the show." The production was nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. Don’t miss your chance to see the show; buy your Jesus Christ Superstar tickets today!
Jesus Christ Superstar is a secular rock opera loosely based on the last week of Jesus’ life as it was written about in the Gospels. The musical follows the form of a traditional passion play as it opens with the preparation for Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem and dramatically ends with his crucifixion. However, the play is character-driven and rather than focusing on the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, it instead focuses on interpersonal and political struggles between the story’s two main characters, Jesus and Judas.
