Jesus Christ Superstar's storied 1970s rock score was initially issued as a concept album and hit the stage in 1971 at the renowned Mark Hellinger Theatre. It has since become a global sensation, running for more than eight years in London. With over 3,358 performances by the time it closed, it was considered the most successful musical in West End history at the time.
Originally premiering at London's renowned Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, the show features lyrics and music by Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony winners Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Renowned producer Timothy Sheader is the show's director, while Drew McOnie is the cast’s choreographer.
Likewise, the production will feature choreography by highly regarded Drew McOnie, musical direction by Tom Deering, designs by Tom Scutt, lighting designs by Lee Curran, and sound designs by Nick Lidster. Producer David Ian mentioned that he was overjoyed to bring this production alive on tour. “Our team has created a fresh and bold new version of a beloved classic which will enthrall both longtime fans of the show and delight those seeing it for the very first time,” he added.
The Broadway show’s tale straightforwardly recounts The Passion of Jesus Christ, including the tribulations and uprising that resulted in his crucifixion. In contrast to other musicals of the day, the composition was revolutionary and challengingly original, thanks to its rock opera structure.
“Now, amidst many popular rock musicals like "Spring Awakening" and "American Idiot," this production straddles the line between being faithful to the original material and finding timely relevance,” the State Press shares about the spectacular show.
