Jesus Christ Superstar

Award-winning director Nick Hrutkay directs Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s worldwide smash hit Jesus Christ Superstar this June.

This ground-breaking rock opera, which reinvented musical theater for the modern age, tells the story of the last week of Christ’s life through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. 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.
