There are very few shows that, in the last 40 years, can truly claim to have changed the face of musical theatre forever. This is the one that did.
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ground-breaking rock opera, exploded onto the West End stage in 1971, telling the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through the eyes of the bad guy, Judas Iscariot.
As compelling today as it was at its inception over forty years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar features some of musical theatre’s most legendary songs from I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, and Gethsemane through to, of course, Superstar.
Leading performer Glenn Carter returns as Jesus, a role he has played in the West End, on Broadway and on film. Australian star Tim Rogers, a seasoned musical theatre performer, made his UK stage debut 15 years ago and now takes on the mighty role of Judas.
X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji plays Mary Magdalene, joining the company direct from the UK and European tour of Thriller Live.
If Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice are the ultimate dream team when it comes to penning musicals mega-hits, the partnership of producer Bill Kenwright and director Bob Tomson, back on board for this masterly revival of the iconic, award-winning musical, is an arrangement that was, like the star of the show Himself, made in heaven.
